"I want the meaning to be available but I also want it sometimes to disappear into fractured reflections or into the sky. Because one’s focus comes and goes, one’s ability to understand what’s happening ebbs and flows. I like the representation of the language to be the same. This tends not only to give the content to people, but it will also pull them to attend."

- Jenny Holzer
