“..Ultimately it is about identity; who we are, where we are, not a formal matter”

David Hockney

“You can gain visions of yourself in all sorts of ways – in a mirror, in photos, or movies, on tape, through the description of others, by getting psychoanalysed and so on, but you cannot quite break out of your skin and be outside of yourself. (modern occult movements, pop psychology fads etc. not withstanding)”

Douglas R. Hofstadter
