“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Paul Boshears Carries Milk, Spills None

This is a very elegant essay about Marina Abramović's performance art, and in particular her piece The Kitchen V: Carrying the Milk (2009).

Abramović started a series called Transitory Objects for Human and Non-Human Use in 1989. How prescient the title seems now.
