The oppositional rule, established upon the philosophical traditions of binarism and dialecticism, situates the two protagonists in this research (the artistic collaboration matthews and allen) as antithetical systems. This discourse proposes a disruption to a metaphysical dichotomy between the noetic authorial text and the poetic paratext. The non-oppositional premise of collaborative dialogue is proposed as a method to resist the oppositional logic of dialecticism and the homogenous ‘third hand’ of collaboration theory. Michel Serres’ assertion that to ‘hold a dialogue is to suppose a third man and seek to exclude him’ positions the ‘third man’ of communication as a disruptive force. The excluded third is a noise in the background of ideological unity, the ‘potential for surprise’, an intervallic exception in a paradigmatic order. This collaborative game breaks the rule of opposition and subsequently generates a third space where the indeterminate relation between the scholastic text and matthews and allen’s paratext performs disruption in the authorial system.
