    From the archive: Annette Michelson on Michael Snow.

    The working of his thought is thus concerned with that slow transformation of the notion of space which, beginning as a vacuum chamber, as an isotropic volume, gradually became a system inseparable from the matter it contains and from time.

    My eye, tuning towards the imaginary, will go to any wavelengths for its sights.
