more Radicant questions

1) Is it possible to interpret something the way an originator intended? How or does this interact with the "cultural rain" we experience?

2) Is the found object a readymade or an appropriated object or its own object? How or this play into Bourriaud's distinction between the two?

3) Can an object be indifferent? If we are constantly experiencing cultural rain, then isn't everything we encounter loaded?

4) Do forms always lead to greater understanding or are they a way for us to cope with understanding to a point?

5) In a capitalist system will it ever be possible, even through appropriation, to completely abolish ownership?

6) If economic development is the primary fracture in the global art world then can a well financed or independently wealthy individual from an industrialized or an under-industrialized nation represent that environment? Wouldn't that person represent a minority that more closely resembles an artist from a informationalist nation?

7) Can an archipelago exist without multiculturalism?

8) If signs are the culture of sharing forms, how do/can they change in different cultures? Will a difference be eradicated in a true archipelago?

9) If a continued exchange of goods creates a constant state of merchandise does the idea of property/ownership become transitory?

10) Is it possible to use a sign the way it was originally used?
