The narrow, vertical rectangles at the far left and far right, as well as the horizontal rectangle at the very top are virtually identical in their length and width. The vertical red text boxes express a different kind of proportion, but directional they indeed are. The repeating and varying of these elongated rectangles creates a rhythm. Utagawa Hiroshige (歌川 広重, 1797 – October 12 1858)

Richard Avedon (1923-2004), Marlon Brandon, 1951. Si em vaga... Viuré, si em vaga encar de viure, supervivent d’un cant remot. Viuré amb la cella corrugada contra les ires, contra el llot.
