artist, educator, thinker and writer

When we as artists, make objects in the ‘traditional’ manner of ‘art’, all we are doing is producing more and more ‘things’ which clutter the real process of ‘art’ and, the world, which, in the end makes the artists’ intellectual commitment to the audience of ‘art’ easy.

For artists like ourselves the purity of the act of production is paramount since all art should be reduced to its essence; in Caplin’s case, the audience’s confrontation with the energy of sound and the intellectual rigour of his processes. Caplin knows this process totally, there is no need for object in his work, he is the object, subject, and the content of the work that he produces.
