If the Clock/Collapse of Time suggests that Hejduk's work operates through the superposition of inherited temporal structures, then the Object/Subject signals his mode of thinking through the production of things as well as words. Hejduk's sketches reveal how he works with objects, shaping and combining physical elements in a way that may be likened to language; and yet, language remains inadequate to their expression. He concretizes thoughts in imagistic object/subjects whose meaning continually eludes theory. It is Hejduk's ability to use the medium of architecture for thinking that has the greatest implication for the contemporary practice of architecture. This aspect of Hejduk's work compels us to rethink how architecture can serve as a communicative art in the public domain today.
