Absence

empty frame

  Blankness. There’s a space between viewer and maker (perhaps even “artist”) that can be critiqued here as an absence of action, of artistry (there’s nothing in the frame), while still not disregarding the artist herself as that actor.  It’s a criticism of the subject while not separating subject and object.  Thought can think outside of separation in this case, and even subject and object: it’s not even a matter of creation and creator, but rather the inseparable character of questioning itself when it asks the unanswerable and ponderable.
