"The tape, having become purposeless tape

within a purposeless aesthetic experience,

is inconsistent with the purposes of tape in practical technological uses.


In this significant contrast, the purposeful pattern imposed on the tape does not fulfill or serve the practical purposes of tape. The flat factual tape has become an image conveying ideas about itself and its possibilities as a material with its own qualities, expressing its own meanings."


Bill Wilson *1932 +2016
