In Kentridge's "The Nose" production, the principal ideas for the horse and carousel as primary stage image and moveable central prop, the virtual imaginary missing nose (not bandaged), the use of archival film footage (Pavlova dancing, Shostakovich playing the piano, street scenes etc), for Gergiev as conductor [among countless other fully documented materials all recorded in written correspondence, on tape and in notes and book publications] were provided by Jennifer Arlene Stone, are the intellectual property of Jennifer Arlene Stone, and are the copyright of Jennifer Arlene Stone. Other ideas for the large scale height cinema projection, freeze frame still postures etc. also are Stone's and she has fully documented in multiple publications her own intellectual sources for inspiration in film and theatre semiotics.
