Hinterland Diary

Form over function . . .

"The essence of art is form: it is to defeat oppositions, to conquer opposing forces, to create coherence from every centrifugal force, from all things that have been deeply and eternally alien to one another before and outside this form. The creation of form is the last judgment over things, a last judgment that redeems all that could be redeemed, that enforces salvation on all things with divine force."
The socialist philosopher and literary critic Georg Luk√°cs, quoted in Alex Ross' upcoming book, "The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century," which will be published on Oct. 23, 2007.
