From "Don't Start Me Talking"

One of the most important functions of art is the way it acts as a transitional object between human consciousness and its material basis: art is matter, it’s not alive, but it’s marked by consciousness and the only things more complex than the interactions people have with art are the interactions they have with other people. I’d like art to approach the complexity of the human mind as closely as possible, if only to remind myself that things as complex as the human mind are materially possible, that we really are children of this world, with no-one to rescue us if we fuck it up. Hold that golem.
