Can incompleteness be about a reverse attraction to ruins? The feelings when time has made its mark on buildings or paintings?
With incompleteness, there is still time, we haven’t even started the clock yet. That’s when the artwork hasn’t yet started to decay.
Even though an incomplete work isn’t protected from the eroding force of time forever, at least it’s an attempt to postpone this upcoming inevitability.
From the artist’s point of view, incompleteness is an attempt topostpone the moment when they have already said it all, and there is nothing more to be said.
