“The fireflies: it’s up to us not to see them disappear. We, ourselves, must  assume their freedom of movement,
the retreat without withdrawal, the diagonal force, the ability to make particles of humanity appear,
to make the indestructible desire appear. We must, ourselves … become fireflies and thus form again a
community of desire, a community of flashes shining out, of dances in spite of all, of thoughts to transmit.”

    BRIAN ENO. REFLECTED

    20,00
    TEXTS BY: Arian Eno, Tom Phillips, Marco Pierini

    «What I think we are doing when we find pleasure in sex, drugs, art and religion is we are rehearsing our ability to surrender. So, this brings us, having taken a very long way round, to why I think this is what I would like to see in a church now. If you try to imagine what the effect of those pieces of work, the works by Beato Angelico, Perugino, Piero della Francesca, the effect those works must have had on the 15th or 16th century eye: that is what I’m trying to recreate. I should be humbler than I am, but I’m trying to com- pete with them in 21st century terms. I’m trying to say “this is what I think should be in churches now”» (B. Eno)
