Re the idea of intention that has been discussed some lately--I had an
artist friend spend the weekend. When I told him I was puzzled by what
some of his work meant, he said that was irrelevant. I said it didn't
mean anything to me at all--that I didn't have any point of accessing
his work--that I needed some sort of handle--that it didn't seem
interesting or worth bothering with otherwise. He said he didn't care
if the work succeeded in reaching anyone or not--he was happy with the
way he had expressed himself.

I've run into this with students from time to time and usually
convince them to provide some sort of cue. Has anyone else run across
this? What do you do?
