In a broad and personal sense, my paper is a sort of testament to things I believe about art and our engagement with it: the inextricable nature of form and content, the thin barriers between our interiors and exteriors, the endless interplay between various forms and mediums, that sort of thing. There’s no real “theory” underlying the paper beyond just: all art is connected, all art modifies both itself and other works of art, and the degree to which this modification takes place is directly correlated to the forms and degrees of attention we can apply to it. In other words, art is magical, it contains an infinite number of potential connections, and we actively manifest these connections by engaging with it.
