“..The interpassive subject does not perform ..for an actual audience, but solely for an ideal audience.” – Robert Pfaller


“interpassive subjects are ..fleeing from their enjoyment. They even avoid it ..where ..experiencing it would be easy.” – Owners of recording devices, for example, watch less television once they have the recorder than they did when they owned only the television set.


“The interpassive subject does not personally believe that he ..has read via the copy machine; this belief is transferred to the scene’s virtual audience. Delegated enjoyment ..entails feigning enjoyment for an observing agency with the help of a consumption medium” – Robert Pfaller on copying so many pages in a library which one will never read, which one nonetheless interpassively enjoys, in the sense of the copymachine reading them for us
