"The status of socially-produced objects...when is smashing actually a putting back together? The breaking not a "ludic" gesture, but rather a singular body-effort hailing other body-efforts -- as intelligence. First the machine is put to "work" (twice, cells D & M), then smashed (cell Y), then the fragments are planted in rows and watered (cell 3), then the fragments/crops are carefully, critically inspected (cell 8). CPT is not interested in "props" (functionalization of objects for character-plot-matrix drama), but rather is invested in (socially-produced) objects as they *don't speak* -- but want to!" - RT
