QUOTES

“And then you said symbolism and suddenly my attention was completely pivoted away from that towards something more abstract”

“So there are two ways of using language. We can use it to word the world, which is to attempt to create a sort of descriptive layer above the world that tells us how things really are, or we can use words to world, the world, which is treating language as something that's part of, and acts within the world”

“There's a danger of the written word because it can't explain itself, because it is context less”
