Man fotografiert Dinge, um sie aus dem Sinn zu verscheuchen. Meine Geschichten sind eine Art von Augenschließen. (Franz Kafka)


"Praise the world to the Angel, not the unsayable: you can´t impress him with your own glory: in the universe, where he feels more deeply, you are a novice. So show him a simple thing, configured from generation to generation, that lives close to hand and in sight.

Tell him things."

 

R.M. Rilke, Duineser Elegien, IX
