We would be addressing different things. Here is a case in which the numeral identity of an object of interpretation is essentially contestable. In February 2005, Christo and Jeanne-Claude installed The Gates in New York City’s Central Park. What was it? How many things were The Gates? When people spoke of it, what were they talking about?
