“And Mr. Biswas buys things, he acquired things, his wife Shama owns things of her own. Hemmed in by her dissent and discord, given to complaint, Mr Biswas marvels at the “endurance and uncomplainingness of inanimated objects”; and these many objects, which he houses, house him too.”

Teju Cole

Hvis alt kunne kobles til noe, ville betydningens utfoldelse vært uendelig, og fortsette for alltid. La oss se på alle tingene som omgir oss, våre boller, våre hender, våre lyder, våre telefoner, våre senger, våre babyer, våre hunder. Alle disse tingene danser i evigvarende kategorier, i mini-operaer med små tings tempo.

“Objects on the loose are always in search of the rest of the plot”

– Charles Jencks.

If everything could connect to anything, the unfolding of meaning would be unlimited, and would go on forever and ever. Let’s look at all the stuff that surrounds us, our bowls, our hands, our sounds, our phones, our beds, our babies, our dogs. All that stuff dances in never ending categories, in mini-operas with the tempo of tiny things.
