Notes

‘Space of crossing: We exist at the point of crossing, with infinite space expanding beyond in both directions. Infinity extends both in and out. The smaller we go on the quantum scale and beyond, the larger and more infinite the space becomes. Our bodies are like the skin between the two: the inner is our spiritual heritage, while we project our reality onto the outer space.’

Pippa Stein. (2004) The Artist’s Writing, in Deborah Bell, Taxi 010, Johannesburg: David Krut. Page 7.
