Michael Heizer and Edward Krasinski reconfigured, and a story of how it happened . . .
“In order to describe what went into the process of making Resettings, in tracing what Murnane calls “my networks of meaning”, I’d like to dispense with the notion of intentionality; the notion that a sovereign individual acts upon the world, forges a path through it somehow through an effort of will and conscious decision making (I decide, therefore I am).
I’d like to replace intention with inclination, with its connotations of tendency and gradient; inclination which leads to desire, a kind of disinterested non-personal desire. Desire as a kind of Bergsonian force in the world, like gravity. Newton’s apple falls to earth because the earth desires the apple and the apple desires the earth; they move together, are inclined towards each other, because the complex system of which they are both a part provides a space for this particular kind of closure. Desire is the suck of possibility, produced through an interaction or negotiation between agents and the terrains they simultaneously occupy and construct. My actions in the world are an endless falling, a falling into possibility.”
