THE ORDER OF THINGS

THE ORDER OF THINGS

“Museums and libraries are heterotopias in which time never ceases to pile up and perch on its own summit… the idea of accumulating everything, the idea of constituting a sort of general archive, the desire to contain all times, all ages, all forms, all tastes in one place, the idea of constituting a place of all times that is itself outside time and protected from its erosion, the project of thus organizing a kind of perpetual and indefinite accumulation of time in a place that will not move – well. in fact, all this belongs to our modernity…”

Michel Foucault 1998

OTHER ECHOES INHABIT THE GARDEN

 

“Other echoes

Inhabit the garden. Shall we follow?

Quick, said the bird, find them, find them,

Round the corner. Through the first gate,

Into our first world, shall we follow

The deception of the thrush? Into our first world.”

 

T S Eliot,  “Burnt Norton”
