Michael D. Jackson
I think all art struggles with the same problem that any form of discursive, scientific, or explanatory writing struggles with, namely, how much is being illuminated by the work, and how much is being obscured, betrayed, or left in the dark. It's very difficult to work out when the right balance has been struck.
—Michael D. Jackson, Distinguished Visiting Professor of World Religions
