An actant is that which acts, that which exerts force or intent. An actant creates action. The minerals in your phone or the carrot you ate as part of lunch or the color of the carrot are all actants — all exert force upon the world. A human body, too, is an actant, or, more precisely, a conglomeration of interdependent actants. This series of paintings explores pigment, color, and flowers as actants.
