“ The artist is a symptomologist. The world can be treated as a symptom and searched for signs of disease, signs of life, signs of a cure, signs of health. Nietzsche thought of the philosopher as the physician of civilization. Henry Miller was an extraordinary diagnostician.

The artist is not outside the symptoms, but makes a work of art from them, which sometimes serves to precipitate them, and sometimes to transform them. ”
