The fact that he has so radically rethought author ship is actually super-interesting. It makes me think of some of these modern artists (Jeff Koons, I think; definitely Takashi Murakami) who operate entire, like, production facilities. They delegate a lot of the work of actu ally fabricating their stuff to other people.
I wonder if there’s a way to take some of that spirit—the notion that author ship is not one-size-fits-all, that there are lots and lots of ways to organize people around the production of creative work —and apply it to the objective of actually making stuff that’s great… not just making lots of stuff.
