"Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition, and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel."

Jenny Holzer

The only time I’ve ever seen this piece is in the *background* to that nirvana photoshoot. Jenny Holzer deserves a lot more credit because her piece is quite profound. Funny how work by a woman is only recognizable in the context of a man’s fame.

"I’m attracted to the idea of drowning. Or rather the idea of jumping off and being enveloped by something, not bad or good, just enveloping. When I was a kid, I had this moment when I got under the water, lying on the pool floor, and I felt I could breathe. I’ve been trying to recreate that feeling ever since."
