In the lecture, Kaprow says that when you’re creating a Happening, “Make it unsure even to yourself if the happening is life or art.”

"The Happening World" : These chapters consist of collage-like collections of short, sometimes single-sentence, descriptive passages. The intent is to capture the vibrant, noisy, and often ephemeral situations arising in the novel’s world. At least one chapter of the narrative, a party where most of the characters meet and where the plot makes a significant shift in direction, is presented in this way.
