Eiffel Tower in the Catacombes

I can see the Eiffel Tower in Berlin sidewalk pavement, Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Bracque and the catacombes.

They are each composed of little pieces, brush strokes and bone.

Fragmentation is all that we have. But, but. Out of fragmentation comes wonders of montage like the cast iron, wrought iron, the Eiffel Tower, cinema, Impressionism, Cubism, Futurism, German Expressionism, Foucault and, of course, Benjamin.

Collecting takes on a whole new meaning/ resonance when one realizes that it is the human impulse to organize, construct, recreate and imagine.
