Jason Sacks: I think you said it very well, Eric, in that Seth is one of those particular sorts of artists whose life and work are continually in dialogue with each other. Unlike some, Seth’s art doesn’t “merely” grow out of his artistic obsessions or his need to convey a complex world on paper. Instead, his art is truly an extension of his approach to the world.
Elkin: Okay, Sacks – I know you’re baiting me here by opening up one of my favorite can of worms – the Blue Mask of self-construction. Your final question is the one that Seth’s Dominion shuffles to answer by showing us the possibilities of a conscious effort to not only create the self, but the world in which it lives. This film exemplifies an audacity of authenticity – and it is this that I think you envy.
