Richard Höglund: Fieldwork

October 10th - November 7th, 2009


The origin of the field is the zero-point –

Absolute value anchored.

Invention pulls on the chain

That pulls on the anchor

That sits at the bottom

Of invention.

Philosophers invent concept. Artists invent form.

The true definition of man does not involve

any consideration

of the number


The zero-anchor tugs the infinite tight

and keeps us looking at the horizon.

Our course spirals through quadrants.

Our course spirals towards the Rupes Nigra –

Water funnel falls to the origin.


October 10th – November 7th, 2009
