"Split-level Standards"

Kirstin Willders


"The Camp sensibility is one that is alive to a double sense in which some things can be taken. But this is not the familiar split-level construction of a literal meaning, on the one hand, and a symbolic meaning, on the other. It is the difference, rather, between the thing as meaning something, anything, and the thing as pure artifice." #16 Notes on Camp, Susan Sontag, 1964
