This Lake Is a Misty Mirror

?He who stands aloof runs the risk of believing himself better than others and misusing his critique
of society as an ideology for his private interest. While he gropingly forms his own life in the frail
image of a true existence, he should never forget its frailty,
nor how little the image is a substitute for true life. Against such
awareness, however, pulls the momentum of the bourgeois within him.?
? Theodor W. Adorno, Minima Moralia: Reflections on a Damaged Life
Night of Sense

"It is not the slumber of reason that engenders monsters, but vigilant and insomniac rationality."
-Gilles Deleuze, Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia

"A German officer visited Picasso in his Paris studio during the Second World War. There he saw
Guernica and, shocked at the modernist chaos of the painting, asked Picasso: 'Did you do this?'
Picasso calmly replied: 'No, you did this!'"
-Slavoj Zizek, Violence: Six Sideways Reflections

"What is familiar is not understood precisely because it is familiar."
-George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, The Phenomenology of Spirit

6Reinhord Friedl
Eight Equidistant Pure Wave Oscillators

When you hear some music or hear some sound, if for some reason you like it very well; the reason
is that sound is in balance or in harmony with your pulse. And so making a sound, you try to make
various different sounds that imitate various different sounds of the universe, but what you are
finally making is your own sound, the sound of yourself. - Doso Watazumi

"Most people like music because it gives them certain emotions such as joy, grief, sadness, an
image of nature, a subject for daydreams or ? still better ? oblivion from ?everyday life?. They want
a drug ? dope - ...Music would not be worth much if it were reduced to such an end. When people
have learned to love music for itself, when they listen with other ears, their enjoyment will be of a
far higher and more potent order, and they will be able to judge it on a higher plane and realize its
intrinsic value...I consider that music is, by its very nature, essentially powerless to express
anything at all, whether a feeling, an attitude of mind, or psychological mood, a phenomenon of
nature, etc.... Expression has never been an inherent property of music. That is by no means the
purpose of its existence...For the phenomenon of music is nothing other than a phenomenon of
speculation...The elements at which this speculation necessarily aims are those of sound and
time...consequently music is a chronologic art...All music is nothing more than a succession of
impulses that converge toward a definite point of freedom thus consists in my moving
about within the narrow frame that I have assigned myself for each of my undertakings...I shall go
even further: my freedom will be so much the greater and more meaningful the more narrowly I
limit my field of action and the more I surround myself with obstacle...The more constraints one
imposes, the more one frees one's self of the chains that shackle the spirit." - stravinsky
8Maeror Tri
The beauty of Sadness

"For the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is." - Wallace Stevens
9 Kane Pour
Wasp in the Silver Orbit Stream

"Political economy came into being as a natural result of the expansion of trade, and with its
appearance elementary, unscientific huckstering was replaced by a developed system of licensed
fraud, an entire science of enrichment." - Marx
10Venn Rain
Place in World

?Love is not vain because it is frustrated, but because it is fulfilled. The people we love turn to ashes
when we posess them.? - Proust
11Mohave Triangles
Smoked Mystics

?There is perhaps no phenomenon which contains so much destructive feeling as 'moral indignation,'
which permits envy or hate to be acted out under the guise of virtue.?
? Erich Fromm, Man for Himself: An Inquiry into the Psychology of Ethics
12Kane Pour
Wand In The Beak Of The Yellow Bird

?People know what they do; frequently they know why they do what they do; but what they don't
know is what what they do does.?
? Michel Foucault, Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason

?Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.? - Lull

Arkose Screes

"Sometimes I think that the surest sign of intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that
none of it has tried to contact us."
"There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want."
- Bill Watterson
15Peat Raamur

"An atmosphere that is inseparable from its object - is no atmosphere at all." - Ludwig Wittgenstein
16Thoughts on Air
Paleo Sails

?We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love.?
? Sigmund Freud
17Seziki Tetrasheaf
Keys to Kishore

"And no period of time can be happier or more prosperous, than those in which it is never regarded,
or heard of." - David Hume
18 Tuluum Shimmering
Swamp Delta Gas Flares

"A quick test of the assertion that enjoyment outweighs pain in this world, or that they are at any
rate balanced, would be to compare the feelings of an animal engaged in eating another with those
of the animal being eaten.? - Arthur Schopenhauer
Pass hidingly Seek

"It is sadder to find the past again and find it inadequate to the present than it is to have it elude
you and remain forever a harmonious conception of memory."
- Francis Scott Fitzgerald
20does it tickle yours?
An old fashioned duet

"Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know' - Ernest Hemingway
