I agree that there is a sensory tussle as we are forced to listen. Because when I watched the movie, my attention was detracted by the blue screen. I used to see the screen and the lines I had heard changed into a kind of sound——making no sense. I couldn’t listened to the lines unless I paid my attention and tried specifically. So in this watching process, I think the visual text was fighting with the audio one. Therefore, can I see this distraction as a kind of organic decline because the patients have to use the second way of getting in touch with the world to replace the first way. And the reason why the sensory tussle would happen is that we are not born with disability and once we are facing vision deterioration, we have to adapt a new sense. Visual information is easy to decode and understand so the audio ones act like assist so there may be conflict when we are forced to listen.

Untitled gives viewers space to be engaged in the art creation and viewers and the González-Torres are both the creators. Viewers are not only the ones who watch the are work but also the participants who change the appearance and the shape of the work. People who participated this work can feel interest and sense of engagement. What’ s more, the bright colors,  the sounds of rubbing candy, the smell of the candy and the discussion of viewers can all  engage the sense of viewers. People can feel the world in diverse ways.
