the ordinary and extraordinary experience

I have the sense that in learning, our best developments grow from works which initially strike us as “too much”; those which are intriguing, demanding, that lead us to experiences which we feel we cannot encompass, but which simultaneously provoke and encourage our efforts.Such works have the effect of containing more than we can assimilate; they maintain attraction and stimulation for our continuing attention. We perservere with that strange joy and agitation by which we sense unpredictable rewards from our relationship to them. These “rewards” put to question – as they enlarge and enrich- correspondences we have alreadyh discovered between what we deeply feel and how our expressive life finds structure.

– Carolee Schneemann, More Than Meat Joy, p. 9
