An Exchange of Letters in Advance of TV

by Will Stuart

Written as the first installment of the fifth incarnation of Will Stuart's ongoing publishing project TOURETTE'S, this exchange relates the founding ideas behind their upcoming contribution to the exhibition STUTTER, at Tate Modern, 23 April - 16 August 2009 (See http://www.tate.org.uk)

Dear Will,
You’ve been accusing me of repeating myself like a drunken bore, quoting me back at myself to make your point. This makes for very uncomfortable reading. Last night I came across the following (by David Foster Wallace) which summarises your accusations: “This is what happens: you imagine the things I will say and then say them for me and then become angry with them. Without my mouth; it never opens. You speak to yourself, inventing sides. This itself is the habit of children: lazy, lonely, self. I am not even here, possibly, for listening to.”
