"You’re not looking at it right or you’re not listening to it right if you’re seeing other things apart from the pure music or the pure shape. With music it’s naturally complicated, but with shape you understand that to not see is a deformation—a kind of putting your eyes on a diet—trying to cut out part of what it is to be human, which is to take fragments and to complete them."

-William Kentridge
