Michlig presents MacArthur, one of his experiments in video art. He explains that the image of the dissolving cake is a recontextualization of a historic and political image. Michlig then considers the role of the viewer, arguing that he is simultaneously enthralled and appalled by the cake’s erasure. Finally, he discusses Franz Kafka’s story In the Penal Colony and that work’s relationship to language.
