How something is asked varies wildly, and it isn’t very easy to define. A
few years ago an art theorist asked the question “What do Pictures
Want” in a famous essay. It yielded interesting results to ask a
question like that, which went against common sense, as pictures should
not desire anything on their own as inanimate objects, after all.
