NOTHING#03

Le mie notti sono più belle dei vostri giorni
Esse sono la porta di una meraviglia
Meraviglia di ogni meraviglia.

My nights are more beautiful than your days
They are the door of a wonder
Wonder of all wonders.

Mes nuits sont plus belles que vos jours
Ils sont la porte d'une merveille
Merveille de toutes les merveilles.


"The first thing I found was this.
What the Photograph reproduces to infinity has occurred only once: the Photograph mechanically repeats what could never be repeated existentially. In the Photograph, the event is never transcended for the sake of something else: the Photograph always leads the corpus I need back to the body I see; it is the absolute Particular, the sovereign Contingency, matte and somehow stupid, the This (this photograph, and not Photography), in short, what Lacan calls the Tuché, the Occasion, the Encounter, the Real, in its indefatigable expression. In order to designate reality, Buddhism says sunya, the void; but better still: tathata, fact of being this, of being thus, of being so; tat means that in Sanskrit and suggests the gesture of the child pointing his finger at something and saying: that, there it is, lo! but says nothing else; a photograph cannot be transformed (spoken) philosophically, it is wholly ballasted by the contingency of which it is the weightless, transparent envelope."

"Camera Lucida" by Roland Barthes
