“Silence itselfthe things one declines to say, or is forbidden to name, the discretion that is required between different speakersis less the absolute limit of discourse, the other side from which it is separated by a strict boundary, than an element which functions alongside the things said, with them and in relation to them within overall strategies. There is no binary division to be made between what one says and what one does not say; we must try to determine the different ways of not saying such things, how those who can and those who cannot speak of them are distributed, which type of discourse is authorized, or which form of discretion is required in each case.” Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality: The Will to Knowledge

"We do not make things any simpler by making simpler things. Reduction does not yield certainty, but something like its opposite, which is ambiguity and multivalence."

"Small differences make all the difference"

Kirk Varnedoe, 2003.

"Ordinarily these things look pretty plain and not important. I think a lot of people want instant importance. They want importance of several decades, instantly, when what you really want to do is get of this notion."

Donald Judd


Patterns I made during my movie class at the Gene Siskel Film Center
