Figures of Speech (diagrammed) is a spatial elaboration of Figures of Speech 1 incorporating the floor piece Silent Element (Figures of Speech). The flat pieces of the diagrammatic floorpiece have been slightly spread out, to make room for a tube structure with several panels. The spectator can walk into the work and occupy several defined positions in the diagram where one side of the panels explains the specific transference of agency that happens in these places and addresses the spectator as an active party in the triangular relationship between artist, artwork, and spectator. The other side of the panels refers to the work that the diagram and lecture is based on, in a more informative way.
