    A worthy observation. Think of the mind behind that statement, thus leading to the watery version...

    The photos may be the visual equivalent.

    Have fun, there's a lot more to read! And no, I did not read all of it, but I did glance at the photos...

    My gosh, the writer for that is just awful. I'm assuming it was written in some other language, and the interpretation doesn't work for English. I've read molecular biophysics articles that are more clear.

    I recall that the people who defined 'International Art English' made a comment to the effect that it often resembled 'inexpertly translated French' even when English was the author's native language...

    Writing in clear English would often rapidly reveal that the ideas being presented are neither radical or original. Much like the willfully ignorant harrumphing that such texts cause when presented to an audience as an object intended to be subject to reactionary derision.

    I was able to find something just as profound using google translate on a foreign version of a particular book....

    This is a crazy fascination in the United States, shining on the streets of the sun and music comes from a funeral jukebox when Robert Frank shows in his huge photo that his old car is a mystery, genius, sadness and secret in your old car. They saw it in the movie. --J.K. (via Google Translate)

    First, thanks your earlier interpretation. Regarding research articles we were taught that twenty or so words per sentence were adequate and the semi-colon is our friend.

    Dunno, but it should be required for curators! Within a sentence of 120 words they should be so f*ucked up to be forced to recompose. ctl-a, d, ctl-n. Whatever. Like a big old digital bitch-slap.
