Quotes

"Lassen Sie uns von einem System sprechen, das alle Sozialorganismen in ein Kunstwerk umwandelt, in dem der gesamte Prozeß der Arbeit… etwas enthalten ist, in dem die Grundregel der Produktion und des Verbrauchs auf einer Form der Qualität nimmt. Es ist ein gigantisches Projekt".
(Let's talk of a system that transforms all the social organisms into a work of art, in which the entire process of work is included... something in which the principle of production and consumption takes on a form of quality. It's a Gigantic project).
- Joseph Beuys

"L’homme est la seule créature qui refuse d’être ce qu’elle est".
(Man is the only creature that refuses to be what he is)
- Albert Camus

“This is what a forest is… this is our heritage.
As Canadians we don’t have great cathedrals or stained glass windows. We don’t have a long history of writings, of poetry, of folk songs. What we have is a very recent history and it is based in the wilderness.
We need to keep this culture strong for without it we are a people without basis”.
- Valerie Langer, Arrestee, 1993, Clayoquot, British Columbia, Canada.

Kia ora Mathieu I share your interest in artistic collaborations. I have just started work on a New Zealand nexus for art and ecology, called Now Future (no website so far...). My quote for this evening: If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is: infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern. — William Blake

In fact, I never thought that I could have met someone who quotes as much (no flatteries intended). Here is a quote from Maupassant which I has helped me tremendously: "it is certainly the lives that we encounter that make life worth living.
