The Office Book (1982)
John Maus - “The Silent Chorus”
aww, it’s been a long time!
|—||Alexandre Dumas, from The Count of Monte Cristo (Penguin Classics, 2003, first published in 1845)|
A personal art project I want to do deals with a sequence of pictures. In pictures 1 - 5, I want to show me playfully playing with my 12-18 foot size cat as he gently throws his paws at me. In pictures 6 - 10, I suddenly show a face of terror as his claws catch my shirt and he bites into half of my body. In pictures 11 - 15, he completely consumes me and then has a cute, indifferent face at the end.
The only one question I would ever want to ask is, “What’s death to the loneliness person in existence?”
Edward Atkinson Hornel, In the Woods, 1904
