The audience's identification with the actor is really an identification with the camera.
Walter Benjamin

the readymade ... was a form of denying the possibility of defining art, because you don't define electricity, you just see the results of electricity.
Marcel Duchamp

ssshhh ards

since everything is contaminated  
since everything is broken  
since irony is the conformity  
  since we no longer sing with one voice
since we still owe so much  
  since the sheer density of our words makes it hard to say one clear thing
since we are poly-linear poets, artists, thinkers, spectators, and none of the above  
  since we should sing to the choir, and preach what we practice
  since we are still Greek, still Western, still moving
so then we puzzle these jagged edges
