Conceptual Art

The system is the work of art;

1CAsmall

the visual work of art is the proof of the System.

2CAsmall

The visual aspect can’t be understood without understanding the system.

3CAsmall

It isn’t what it looks like,

4CAsmall

but what it is that is of basic importance.

Ghostville

1-ghostville_039small

It’s hard to tell time when time won’t tell you.

(I need the Clockmaker, come on back though.)

2-ghostvillet_032small

You can’t play chess if the Kings and Queens have departed.

(Talkin’ ’bout a revolution?)

3-ghostville_038smallfix

If a picture is leaning one way, leaning the other way won’t straighten it.

(You see what I did there.)

4-ghostville_035smallFix

No one expects the Serbian Rokenrol.

(Give it up for Vlada i Gile!)

Noir

Hollow Triumph

Paul Henreid: You’re a bitter little lady.

Joan Bennett: It’s a bitter little world.

The Big Sleep

Humphrey Bogart regarding Lauren Bacall:

She was worth a stare. She was trouble.

noir2small

The Big Steal

Robert Mitchum: I don’t usually make it a habit to butt into women’s affairs,

but what’s this guy Fisk to you?

Jane Greer: Don’t change your habits on my account.

noir3small

Ace in the Hole

Jan Sterling: I don’t pray.

Kneeling bags my nylons.

noir4small

Farewell, My Lovely

Dick Powell: I caught the blackjack right behind my ear.

A black pool opened up at my feet.

I dived in.

It had no bottom.

noir5small

Detour

Tom Neal: Money. You know what that is. The stuff you never have enough of.

Little green things with George Washington’s picture that men slave for, commit crimes for, die for.

It’s the stuff that has caused more trouble in the world than anything else ever invented.

Simply because there’s too little of it.

noir6small

The Big Steal

Jane Greer to Robert Mitchum: What I like about you is you’re rock bottom.

I wouldn’t expect you to understand this,

but it’s a great comfort for a girl to know she could not possibly sink any lower.

noir7small

The Woman in the Window

Edward G. Robinson to Joan Bennett: There are only three ways to deal with a blackmailer.

You can pay him and pay him and pay him until you’re penniless.

Or you can call the police yourself and let your secret be known to the world.

Or you can kill him.

noir8small

Blade Runner

Harrison Ford: [narrating] I don’t know why he saved my life.

Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before.

Not just his life – anybody’s life; my life. All he’d wanted were the same answers the rest of us want.

Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got?

All I could do was sit there and watch him die.
