'Having collected so many documents, how to assemble them, how to fashion a singular artwork out of all these wildly different objects? The answer is clear: by clustering, reducing, shaping, cutting. This is a homage, perhaps inadvertently, to that emerging electronic culture in which "ctrl c + ctrl v" reigns supreme. Marker decided that the accumulation of contents is in itself an act of creation. Which is scarcely a new proposition; but the act of working on digital objects forces you to face its implications.'
'A legal lynching which smears with blood a whole nation. By killing the Rosenbergs you have quite simply tried to halt the progress of science by human sacrifice. Magic, witch-hunts, auto-de-fé, sacrifices - we are here getting to the point: your country is sick with fear... You are afraid of the shadow of your own bomb.' JPS.
