A quote by Ellsworth Kelly

ellsworth kelly

Making art has first of all to do with honesty. My first lesson was to see objectively, to erase all ‘meaning’ of the thing seen. Then only, could the real meaning of it be understood and felt.

Quotes from “Solaris” by Stanislaw Lem

solaris stanislaw lem

A single world, our own, suffices us; but we can’t accept it for what it is.

But what am I going to see?
I don’t know. In a certain sense, it depends on you.

At these times they make either their own variations on external forms, more complex versions of them, or even “formal extensions,” and they can entertain themselves in this way for hours, to the delight of the abstract artist and the despair of the researcher, who strives in vain to comprehend any of the emerging processes.

It is unimaginability itself.

The content of this architecture is motion, intent and purposive.

Comprehending — that at the same time, above us and beneath us, in the plunging deep, beyond the limits of sight and imagination there are multiple, million fold simultaneous transformations connected to one another.

The tangled labyrinth of nighttime thoughts that were feverish, half logical, and thus acquired a new dimension and meaning.

Deprived by a process of repeated atrophy of its former sensory organs, such that it supposedly knew nothing of the existence of external phenomena or objects, enclosed in a vortex of gigantic currents of thought whose abode, cradle, and creator were the depths spinning beneath their two suns.

After all, in the brain there aren’t any words, feelings, the recollection of a person is an image written in the language of nucleic acids on megamolecular asynchronous crystals.

Beneath the red sun the ocean was blacker than ever.

…didn’t save anyone, didn’t serve any purpose, it just was.

I’d rather be on my own. After all, it’s something new, something completely new.

Theory was quite incapable of conveying the actual experience.

That’s it, I’ve published 100 websites!

First of all I must thank Reinier Feijen, who has been coding my ideas for 14 years now.

There are many others to thank… friends, family, artists, curators, collectors, writers, collaborators, interns, producers, institutions, galleries, museums, grants, residencies, blogs, magazines, and many more.

Thank you everyone! And thank you!

Rafaël Rozendaal.
