  • What if our starting point were the Snowman of Jenna himself, rather than the proposition that he is cold? Isn’t the Snowman of Jenna, like the legendary Antelope of Suzanne, a document? Then wherein lies hisitemhood, his texthood, his workhood? And can we say that he, rather than any depiction or representation of him, has subjects? Or are those subjects properties of the contexts in which he is represented rather than properties of the snowman himself?
