A Modern Artist's Notebook

“My dog will happily urinate up a a Michaelangelo sculpture if I let him. To my dog, the sculpture is no different to the lamp post in my road. To my dog, the lamp post is an object with no more status than a Michaelangelo sculpture and this tells me that my dog's mind is sensing objects with a more basic awareness than I do.

What my dog experiences that I cannot is the primal sensation in both the lamp post and the Michelangelo.”
