"The paradox is that there has never been so much control of images by governments and corporations- control of images, control of our landscape, of this landscape that affects our lives. What we see is what makes us. What kinds of thoughts do we have, based on this landscape that surrounds us, this landscape that is so much under control?"

- Alfredo Jaar
