Godsey, thanks for adding to the discussion. Reading the discussion following on Ms. Siddiqi's commentary (on Vice, no less) is heartening in many ways. Truth is neither singular nor independent of context. This is what I find so edifying about artists building on and extending popular culture — that they are examining and redefining the many sorts of meaning these works may not have done on their own. And this invitation deepens and connects, even if the many people who participate in the discussion don't come to agreement.
