the truth about DEVOUR.

 quote from filmmaker jim jarmusch,

that reads:

"nothing is original. steal from anywhere that resonates

with inspiration or fuels your imagination. devour old films,

music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams,

random conversations, architecture, bridges,

street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows.

select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul.

if you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic.

authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent.

and don't bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it

if you feel like it. in any case, always remember

what jean-luc godard said:

'it's not where you take things from –

it's where you take them to.'"

thank you, jim jarmusch.

you spoke directly to my soul and inspired me.

new piece...
