Life aspiration is to be this robot
A milky lake, I’ll leave the pilsner behind, skip run to an airborne 1/8th of a mile swim. How to hold the moment in space between the sunburnt crest and chilly pool; descend, descend, descend.

The more our daily life appears standardised, stereotyped and subject to an accelerated reproduction of objects of consumption, the more art must be injected into it in order to extract from it that little difference which plays simultaneously between other levels of repetition, and even in order to make the two extremes resonate - namely, the habitual series of consumption and the instinctual series of destruction and death. Art thereby connects the tableau of cruelty with that of stupidity, and discovers underneath consumption a schizophrenic clattering of the jaws, and underneath the most ignoble destructions of war, still more processes ofconsumption. — Gilles Deleuze Difference and Repetition p. 293 (via hollmanlozano)
