Art of Writing a Complex Sentence About Art

This abstract of this paper about art is itself a work of art, one that is difficult to describe:

Presentational Form in First Person Research: Off-Line Collaborative Reflection Using Art,” Steven S. Taylor [pictured here], Action Research, vol. 2, no. 1, March 2004, pp. 71-88. (Thanks to Jose Closs for bringing this to our attention.) The author, who is at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Massachusetts, begins his report with this sentence:

“Rigorous reflection for the purposes of learning about and changing our own behavior as the foundation of an organizational change process (in the action science tradition) can include representing our tacit knowing with an artistic form and then applying explicit analytic techniques to the artistic form to generate actionable explicit knowing.”
