If Bored, Try Thinking Of Earth As An "Alien" Planet

Fig. 1. Man Ray - London Transport, 1938

'To the degree that a work breaks through the realm of art and becomes utopian perception, it is creation - meaning that it is subject to moral categories in relation not just to human beings in the act of conception, but to man's existence in the sphere of perception. The moral nature of creation gives the work the stamp of the expressionless.'

Walter Benjamin
