Part Four – Assignment 4: The Art of Difference and the Difference of Art

Given the nature of difference-in-itself, or what we have referred to as theoretical difference, it would be an error to say that it appears in some works and not others. It would also be an error to think that difference was the only thing a work had to offer. However, with some caution and a little licence, we can show that some works invite a differential interpretation more than others. Such works will generally have a double aspect like the ’duck-rabbit’ and other picture puzzles though this won’t always be visual, it may be conceptual. Allegories and simulacra are also suggestive of difference.

Choose one of the works below and explore its possible interpretations in terms of difference. Think carefully about its potential and research the work before you begin.
