Drawing (250) from THE BASIS OF MAKE-UP

"Handwriting that had been scrawled over a crumpled photograph of the main street of a small town in the Midwest of 1950s America, made unreadable by whiteout. If all thought could be attributed to a system, that which appears on its surface as language would merely be the tiny segment of a spherical surface and as irregular in its structures as the surface of our whole planet. The surfaces of being, both universally and drearily accessible to the technological image - here they are once again broken. The gravity of thoughts aiming at an invisible core, and the projections of the writing, originating from this core, that is declined on the surfaces of all objects. A weathered language, SECOND CLAUSES that occur without our assistance. We could have experienced all this together. Now it's too late. Two fingers of a hand operate the X-ray equipment of a cancer research centre. A drink from a cup of hemlock. The poisoned person suffocates while fully conscious."
