the street: "Linking acts and footsteps, opening
meanings and directions, these words operate in the name of an
and wearing-away of their primary role. They become liberated
spaces that can be occupied. A rich indetermination gives them,
of a semantic rarefaction, the function of articulating a second,
poetic geography on top of the geography of the literal, forbidden
or permitted meaning. They insinuate other routes into the functionalist
and historical order of movement." M. de Certeau, "Walking
in the City." In, The Practice of Everyday Life.
Berkeley, CA., 1984. p.105.
feet: "The fundamental interpretation of these footprint
characteristics is fairly straightforward. The well-marked ridge
between the toes and the rest of the foot is a sure indication
that the Sasquatch's toes (if this is indeed a real footprint
and not a fake) are much longer, more ape-like, than in man. J.
Napier, Bigfoot: The Teti and Sasquatch in Myth and Reality.
New York, 1973. p.114.

what mattered was to represent on the wall the beginnings of creation:
the initial seed (the point) appears under the effect of the first
vibration (the axis), followed by a second (the arms), giving the four
cardinal directions, that is the scene of the Universe; a third furnishes
the lower limbs of terrestrial beings, and shows their sex. For a short
moment these figures maintain this incomplete appearance which is quite
forgotten when the edifice is completed; the sketches have become human
beings." M. Griauie, "The Meaning of Negro-African
Portraiture." In, R-J Moulin, Editor, Prehistoric Painting.
guns: "The gun is our mediator with the world and therefore
our saviour. The tidings of the gun: such-and-such is outside,
have no fear. The gun saves us from the fear that all life is within
us. It does so by laying at our feet all the evidence we need of
a dying and therefore a living world." J.M. Coetzee, "The
Narrative of Jacobus Coetzee." In, Dusklands.
New York 1974.
