It prolongs and diffuses itself throughout our dreams and fancies..."

From Instagram:
"Like the smallest animal in the dirt, like the smallest plant, I began by feeding myself...it is that activity—which we cannot dream of shedding—that defines the most general class to which we belong: 'we' living things."

From Instagram:
"This white—‘cold and durable,' as Malevich put it—offered a material invitation, not to a mystical neverland of reference or expression, but, in true revolutionary fashion, to the transplanting of some elsewhere here."

From Instagram:
"Something seemed rather unusual for an erotic publication: There were more architecture plans, interior-decoration pictures, and design objects than naked women. What was the relationship between gender, sexuality, and architecture?"

From Instagram:
"Sometime before 1521, Dürer drew the disembodied head of a walrus, a creature caught in the extreme north of Norway... a specimen whose physiognomic 'accuracy' mattered less than the evocation of an unknown geographic elsewhere."

From Instagram:
"This 'I' is, of course, a fiction, just as the 'I' in Shakespeare's sonnets is a fiction...It is a character that Dylan invents anew for each song. Sometimes that character knows many things. Sometimes it knows little." BOB DYLAN'S POETICS: HOW THE SONGS WORK by Timothy Hampton #BobDylan #Shakespeare #Sonnet #Ballad #Character #Poetics #Song #LiteraryTheory #Lyric #WoodyGuthrie #Rimbaud
From Instagram:
"Botany was one discipline in which truth-to-nature persisted as a viable standard in the realm of images. Some botanists followed the beckoning mirage of an image made by nature itself, seemingly without human intervention." OBJECTIVITY by Lorraine Daston and Peter Galison #SummerReads #FromTheArchives #ZoneClassics #DrawnFromNature #Science #HistoryOfScience #Observation #Botany #Drawing #Image #19thCentury
From Instagram:
"In 1871, Norwegian hunters unearthed a mysterious chunk of pulp in the Russian Far North, a thousand miles away from any permanent habitation. The mass, caked with gravel, ice, and moss, turned out to be a cache of Netherlandish engravings."

From Instagram:
"Quite unlike both Cohen and Mitchell, Dylan radiates outward in his work, and his interest lies in absorbing into his singing persona all of the material of the culture around him."

From Instagram:
"We shouldn't enclose life in a single moment when individual life confronts universal death. A life is everywhere, in all the moments that a given subject goes through...in the absolute of the immediate consciousness."

From Instagram:
"A haunting sketch made aboard Pet's ship in the Asian Arctic shows clusters of small islands fronting blocked-in ships beset by 'infinite yse'...to perish in such terrain was not always to vanish, but to accrete, to become one with terrain."

From Instagram:
"Dylan's constant reflection on the 'old' and the 'new,' on what the poet Rimbaud called 'absolutely modern,' will help us to locate the songs in a history of forms....his work may be less that of rock music, or 'the Sixties,' than of artistic modernism."
