any object, intensely regarded, may be a gate of access to the incorruptible eons of the gods

 daniel gustav cramer and haris epaminonda

the term privileged instance is the only one that, with a certain amount of accuracy, accounts for what can be encountered at random in the search; the opposite of a substance that withstands the test of time, it is something that flees as soon as it is seen and cannot be grasped. the will to fix such instants, which belong, it is true, to painting or writing is only the way to make them reappear, because the painting or the poetic text evokes but does not make substantial what once appeared. (it is about) creating pathways permitting the endless reattainment of that which flees. - Bataille
