The Process of Art's Creation



Radio Waves blog Thoreau's woods sign

"Perhaps most art, at some fundamental level, is about the process of its own creation, if for no other reason than that it bears the indelible claw marks of the hands that made it. Walden, for instance, is not just about Thoreau's experiences in nature, but also about the assembling of those experiences into the book itself. And Virginia Woolf's experiments in her novels with extended interior monologue suggest that, maybe, that's what her novels are really about: their composition through a particular mode of consciousness."

—Nicholas Rombes, author of The Absolution of Roberto Acestes Laing and the writer/director of the forthcoming The Removals, reviewing Shane Carruth's Upstream Color at Los Angeles Review of Books
