Among a host of other things, Kim David Bots is interested in the usage of language used in jokes, turns of phrase, colloquialisms, sayings, etc., as they often present themselves as direct, short, clear, used with an air of wisdom, while simultaneously being incredibly obscure or rooted in a past that has become completely nonsensical to us. With this comes an interest in fragmentary storytelling and the way in which stories can build over time. Another increasing interest of Bots is in the idea of there being different, ‘bastardized iterations’ of the same work. He could go on and on about it but this text had limits to its size, much to the frustration of the artist, or as he puts it: ‘I’m not good at being concise.’
