From publisher "Black and white photography, as in a duel are two trucks on a narrow bridge over head to head, no one passes the other. "Two Trucks / Two Decisions (on bridge)" is the title of the work that has realized the Californian conceptual artist John Baldessari for texts on art. Baldessari suggested by the title of a story that is not even shown in the picture. As a continuum of torn before and after, the photo will appear as a frozen moment of an action that complements the viewer in his presentation: The film still is in some ways a "Film Still", which takes place in the mind of the beholder. In the area of conflict between pre-images and each individual interpretation and charging just located these images, as Baldessari on the influence of mass media, a pool of images and ideas to produce (re) to specify certain patterns of perception of reality and thus the desire and the imagination the observer structure. Because these patterns of perception form the matrix, the "Two Trucks / Two Decisions (on bridge)" a symbol of confrontation, of hopelessness and mutual paralysis can be."; in EXCELLENT COND.
