Donald Judd, “Warhol: You have to conclude that things that shit shit, talk shit, and look like shit are shit. Or shit, talk shit, and look like shit are shit or are shit that shit, etc., or are shit that craps, talk shit, and look like shit. Or are craps that shit, talk, crap, and look like shit are shit.”
To write is to organize a relationship. –artist, Marcel Broodthaers
Words are events, they do things, change things.
They transform both speaker and hearer; they feed energy back and forth and amplify it.
They feed understanding or emotion back and forth and amplify it.
— Ursula K. Le Guin
All these things are offshoots of words… Words are the most important part, and if they don’t mean a lot, I have a hard time with the rest of it.
— Laurie Anderson, 1983
