Is this a moment, is this art, is this art using art, is the being who made this art still in this room because what was made is here, is this glass, glass through which I cannot see, is this light that doesn’t illuminate but prevents me from seeing still light, is this a still life, was all this moving, did you used reflections of light to stop them so I could see, does this man walk toward me or will he back away, will he be pulled by the light back from where he came, did time alter, is this one splinter of time, are you connected through art or separated, did you change him, is he a mirror, is he a dream, can you feel him, does feeling him make him real.
