you owe the world not the other way around.

THE IDEA OF TRANSCENDENCE IS USED TO OBSCURE OPPRESSION.

a single event can have infinitely many interpretations.

PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE IS ESCAPISM.

all things are delicately interconnected.

REVOLUTION BEGINS WITH CHANGES IN THE INDIVIDUAL.

looking back is the first sign of aging and decay.

 

Jenny Holzer, you are my hero. I have been staring at your work. It is very subtle, and yet very prominent and abrasive at the same time. The part that seemed to ring true to me particularly was her reliance on existing text as a way of communicating, and the fact that the work, which is literal/text based, seems to provide a distance between herself and her work, rather than making it central that you understand who she is to approach her work. In doing so, it blurs the lines of authorship the way that advertising does, which is something beautiful about the work itself.

Regardless,

I can’t stop thinking about it. So, you succeeded.
