"the frequent lapses of control by the conscious. it includes: the question that is undefined, the behaviour of the architecture in respect to its punctuation, as characteristic of a given set of co-ordinates, a matter of indisputable fact, or declines & is breathless, the pronominal invention "quand le corps s'impose," as no longer reflecting with his intellect he follows his imagination & loses himself in the particular"
first exhibited april 2001, trinity college, cambridge, uk
|"(... a man who is not a function of the reality about him does not exist because it focuses upon conditions of intelligibility--the sideways scuttling of pseudonyms, written east to west: urging you to forget me, not held back by false remittance ... her black mantilla a glass sea far from the glass ship, liquidambar from its aromatic resin--two versions: the little girl with the sestina cannot choose between them, the little sestina on a green surface beside her sistership, resting at the tip of the colophon's forefinger"
"emptied of its emotional freight & inventing for the purpose some form of practicum though not being convinced by it (not this not this) of which could be described an illusion & the corresponding waste perhaps this is what x means when it says in answer to a question ideas may produce boredom or result a smile-less end station, anything in order to appear unlike them but where are we the ourselves, of this so-called realism?"
