A Review of an exhibition held at Defibrillator Gallery of Works by Scott Nadeau
"Men no longer believed, without practical reservations, in heaven and hell and the communion of saints... these supernatural figures, though they were human in origin and in consonance with certain stable human needs, had become wraiths." Lewis Mumford, Technics and Civilization
A response to the Novel Remainder by Tom McCarthy
There is no natural activity. Activity is learned, memorized, and repeated as necessary. Among the first activities learned by any human child are talking, followed shortly by walking. These acts defy both nature and gravity. That is their very purpose. They are acts of desire. Simple repetitions allied with a will that desires to manifest itself.

words lead to roman glow
so brightly that whatever
it means reveals to all
who pass through the
pearly gates of
something i dont
