“We do have a future and a past, but the future takes the form of a circle expanding in all directions, the past is not surpassed but revisited,repeated, surrounded, protected, recombined,reinterpreted and reshuffled. Elements that appear remote if we follow the spiral, may turn out to be quite nearby if we compare loops.”- ACW
“The young Sigmund Freud, while then absorbed in physiological research, was baffled by his inability to find the testicles of eels: his object of study. This is an obsession particularly significant for one who would become the theoretician of the castration complex. One can imagine Freud’s confusion and, perhaps, helplessness before the phallic animal whose gender he was unable to determine. Suspended in a state of sexual uncertainty, each eel is the prototype of a non-physiological difference in gender, whilst still (visually) a phallic symbol.”- Sébastien Pluot
