Unfortunately, while such seamlessness
announces extraordinarily skilled fabrication, it also preserves associations with craft and commerce that are perhaps no longer desirable.
He favors a constant flow of movement much like the liquid seamlessness
found in ice skating, which he readily admits has had an influence on his work.
These solutions further the seamlessness
of the installation phase of projects, thereby helping companies reduce costs and improve productivity within their work.
JOHN BALDESSARI: There is a kind of seamlessness

Given the seamlessness
of Raad's self-presentation, in his performances and his prose, and the amount of control he exercises over every detail of the project's composition and dissemination--continually retitling and refiling the work, revising biographies and histories--it's not surprising that much of the recent critical attention has focused narrowly on the nature of its authorship.
