Last fall, my friend Filip disappeared, after sending me a cryptic e-mail. He attached an image of John Baldessaris manifesto What Thinks Me Now, with the phrase "I want to express myself in archetypal imagery" underlined. He also attached a cover song. Clues!
At UKS I talk about my efforts to find Filip: I met a dance group with a particular relationship to copies. I also interviewed a musician, copied a photograph, and made some paintings to get in touch with my lost friend. Why are some copies better than the original?
