The recipe of a work of art - it's ingredients - how to make it - the formula:
1. There must be a clear preoccupation with death – intimations of mortality... Tragic art, romantic art, etc., deals with the knowledge of death.

2. Sensuality. Our basis of being concrete about the world. It is a lustful relationship to things that exist.

3. Tension. Either conflict or curbed desire.

4. Irony. This is a modern ingredient – the self-effacement and examination by which a man for an instant can go on to something else.

5. Wit and play... for the human element.

6. The ephemeral and chance... for the human element.

7. Hope. 10 % to make the tragic concept more endurable.

The history of art is the history of men who, for the most part, have preferred hunger to compliance.

When I think of myself, my thought seeks itself in the ether of a new dimension. I am on the moon as others are sitting at their balcony. I am part of the gravitation of the planets in the fissures of my mind.
