The Sympathy of Things

The Sympathy of Things
"I think that if there is one thing we can learn from John Ruskin, it is that each age must find its own way to beauty, and in our case, this means finding our way back to beauty, since we seem to have lost sight of it completely. One cannot simply hope to survive a hundred-year obsession with fracture and fragment by accident. As I say at one point in this book, so much has been destroyed that to have any hope of reparing it, we must learn a forgotten language, make it new and speak up until we are heard."

-Lars Spuybroek, The Sympathy of Things
