I’ve watched a 1978 episode of Coronation Street over and over again. I’ve watched a Rod Stewart documentary more than 6 times. I kept photographing clouds and TVs. I’ve repeated words and images again and again.
What does that say about me?

About

Recently, Truman Capote suggested that I should eat nothing but apples for a week. “Suppose you ate nothing but apples for a week,” he said. “Unquestionably you would exhaust your appetite for apples and most certainly know what they taste like.”

Then, not long after Truman set the apple challenge, Gertrude Stein told me, “I always say that you can not tell what a picture really is or what an object really is until you dust it every day and you cannot tell what a book is until you type it or proof read it. It then does something to you that only reading never can do.”

So, I thought about how repetitive acts can lead to intimate knowledge of a thing or a person or a place. I’ve been testing this out. I’ve watched a 1978 episode of Coronation Street over and over again. I made a transcription then repeatedly recorded myself reading it. I’ve watched a Rod Stewart documentary more than 6 times. I kept photographing clouds and TVs. I’ve repeated words and images again and again.
What does that say about me?

Yn ddiweddar, awgrymodd Truman Capote ddylwn i fwyta dim ond afalau am wythnos. "Suppose you ate nothing but apples for a week" dywedodd. "Unquestionably you would exhaust your appetite for apples and most certainly know what they taste like." 

Yna, ddim yn hir ar ôl i Truman osod y sialens, dywedodd Gertrude Stein wrthai " I always say that you can not tell what a picture really is until you dust it everyday and you cannot tell what a book is until you type it or proof read it. It then does something to you that only reading never can do." 

Felly, meddyliais am sut mae tasgaiu ailadroddol yn gallu arwain at wybodaeth dda o wrthrych neu berson neu le. 'Dw'i wedi bod yn trio profi hyn. Gwyliais bennod o 1978 o Coronation Street drosodd a throsodd. Creais drawsgrifiad ac yna recordiais fy hun yn ei ddarllen eto ac eto. 'Dw'i wedi gwylio rhaglen ddogfen ar Rod Stewart mwy na 6 gwaith. Roeddwn yn tynnu lluniau o cymylau a setiau teledu. 'Dw'i wedi ailadrodd geiriau a lluniau tro ar ol tro. 
Beth mae hyn yn ei ddweud amdanai?
