INCENDIARE

THERE ARE THOSE WHO RECEIVE AS BIRTHRIGHT AN ADEQUATE OR AT LEAST UNQUESTIONED SENSE OF SELF, AND THOSE WHO SET OUT TO REINVENT THEMSELVES, FOR SURVIVAL OR FOR SATISFACTION, AND TRAVEL FAR. SOME PEOPLE INHERIT VALUES AND PRACTICES AS A HOUSE THEY INHABIT; SOME OF US HAVE TO BURN DOWN THAT HOUSE, FIND OUR OWN GROUND, BUILD FROM SCRATCH, EVEN AS A PSYCHOLOGICAL METAMORPHOSIS. AS A CULTURAL METAMORPHOSIS THE TRANSITION IS FAR MORE DRAMATIC.

FLUID INSCRIPTIONS

THE INSTINCT TO MARK THE PLACE ONE HAS OCCUPIED IN THE WORLD IS NOT PARTICULAR TO HUMANS.

BUT IT IS, LIKE THE VERY ACT OF COLLECTING OBJECTS, ONE OF THE IMPULSES FROM WHICH CULTURE IS BORN AND DEFINED. NONE OF US CAN RESIST ANNOUNCING OUR PRESENCE, NO MATTER HOW TEMPORAL OR HUMBLE OUR DWELLING MIGHT BE; WE WRITE OURSELVES INTO WALLS AS A WAY OF PROTESTING THE RELENTLESSNESS, THE UNCARINGNESS, OF TIME.
