One Hundred Years of Solitude

Material Memory

Primary Research


"The sun emerged from the fog, forming a perfect white disc; the whole lake was bathed in light. On the horizon, the Twelve Bens Mountains formed the palette of grays like images from a dream. They said nothing. As they came into Galway, Walcott spoke: 'I'm an atheist myself, always have been, but I can understand why they're Catholic here. There's something very special about this country. Everything seems constantly trembling: the grass in the fields or the water on the lake, everything signals it's presence. The light is soft, mutable. You'll see. The sky itself is alive'."
'The Elementary Particles' (1998) Michel Houellebecq
