    The Perseids

    Curated by Kari Adelaide and Sörine Anderson
    The Custer Observatory; Southold, New York; August 14, 2010

    “A whirling light on the slopes of rushes…the dew of evening and the sweat of the stars are paired…in the avalanche of milk from the fierce stars…The last hem of the breezes, there where the pheasant of the moon flees and dies…Thus do ships lie down in the silver storm…It is in the sweet escape called the future, an escape that is always possible, that the stars that until now have bent over our distress are resorbed…the shadow of trees, the whirling shadow of dust, to come to grips with our shadow…my eyes were only a shadow-theater.”
    –André Breton
