The Third Man
This essay discusses the series of ‘Blind-Time Davidson’ drawings made by artist Robert Morris, which were inspired by Davidson’s Essays on Actions and Events. Each drawing contains a fragment from an essay by Davidson and a description of the artist’s intention in making the drawing (blindfolded). It argues that Morris depicted the essential element on which the concept of an autonomous object (and world) depends — an intersubjective measure of error and success, of truth and falsity. He has put his viewers in a position to triangulate with him the location of his creative acts.
