beginning now: "An artist is enslaved by time only if the time is controlled by someone or something other than himself. The deeper the artist sinks into the time stream the more it becomes oblivion; because of this, he must remain close to the temporal surfaces. Many would like to forget time altogether, because it conceals the "death principle" (every authentic artist knows this). Floating in this temporal river are the remnants of art history, yet the "present" cannot support the cultures of Europe, or even the archaic or primitive civilizations; it must instead explore the pre-and post-historic mind; it must go into the places where remote futures meet remote pasts." R. Smithson, "A Sedimentation of The Mind: Earth Projects. 1968."

the artist appears: "La Californie had a fence around it and watchmen whose job it was to say no one was home, according to Hélène Parmelin. Those who got by were often told inside that the master was resting, working, or out---only to have him dash out on hearing a friendly voice and shout welcome!" P. Cabanne, Pablo Picasso: His Life and Times. New York, 1977. p.461.

"If there is a thought of the hand or a hand of thought, as Heidegger gives us to think, it is not of the order of conceptual grasping. Rather this thought of the hand belongs to the essence of the gift, of a giving that would give, if this is possible, without taking hold of anything." J. Derrida, "Geschlecht II: Heidegger's Hand." In, Deconstruction and Philosophy: The Texts of Jacques Derrida. Chicago, IL., 1987. p.169.

"Recluses in Japan are often shabby, picturesque individuals who are called yama-otoko, or mountain men. The average Japanese considered yama-otoko somewhat uncivilized, often insane, and sometimes dangerous. Yama-otoko had strange companions such as she-wolves with human heads, monsters, freaks, and other creatures antagonistic to human beings." N. Kiej'e, Japanese Grostesqueries. Rutland, VT., 1973.

tips the mind: "In at least some cases the experience of a supernatural being in the natural world causes insanity. That is, a creature from another realm is found in the natural world, and the shock of it causes illness of the mind. A plausible explanation for this is that the categorical confusion of realms is so 'unthinkable' as to cause the thinking or conscious mind to temporarily 'disappear.' The object is too powerful for a rational mind to contain." M.M. Halpin, "Investigating the Goblin Universe." In, M.M. Halpin and M.M. Ames, eds, Manlike Monsters on Trial. Vancouver, Canada, 1980. p.18.<
