The idea I had may prove weak, but it always leaves a trace. Which may then prove durable and become the starting point for a new work of art.

Like a whisper; nothing but the colour black and the counter-light; in fact this means the last breath. Or actually the first. We cannot define them or separate the first one from the last without giving them a meaning which they do not in themselves possess.

A black pane, vibrationless. A square, or two pieces of land. Black soft earth, sweet and painful. Above everything, a dazzling joy. We all owe ourselves that much. Only that measure of infinity. Full. For emptying.

You can only go from darkness to light - and back - in order to see.
