You have to go alone

'You have to go alone'
A Dunedin Art School graduating student in 2008 had some books on a table which he was asking visitors to open on a certain random page. You had to read the xth line to him. He then typed it up on a card and presented it to the participant.

I still have mine on my pin-wall and I just noticed that the Emil Nolde postcard pinned under it seems to illustrate the text. (The postcard is one of Emile Nolde's 'unpainted paintings', some of my favorite work of all time.)

This is a piece of conceptual art that seems to have a life of its own. Interesting isn't it!
