Lot Essay

‘I’ve done a lot of work on the concept of order and disorder, it’s just a question of knowing the rules of the game. Someone who doesn’t know them will never see the order that reigns in things. It’s like looking at a starry sky. Someone who does not know the order of the stars will see only confusion, whereas an astronomer will have a very clear vision of things.’ ALIGHIERO BOETTI
