Discourse Dialectics - an art work by T Newfields
Juanita: Wasn't this work inspired by Jacques Lacan?
Jack: (Half in jest) Of course – the way that competing discourses vie for dominance is perfectly clear.
Ella: (Half-earnestly) And can't you sense how the phallic desire to penetrate into the depths is also. . .
Shu: (Interrupting Ella) Well, I suppose from that point of view we would also have to acknowledge the contribution of Hegel. Clearly, there is a dialectical dynamism inherent in the this image.
Jack: Ahh . . . (shrugging his shoulders) Can idiocy ever approach wisdom?
