"In my imagination, what I discover, I do not call it knowledge, for me, this is happiness. For me as soon as it becomes knowledge, happiness is lost. I don not manage to do that it does not become knowledge, but sometimes I get that precise moment of happiness. Happiness is linked to the contact with myself and with the world, and the relationship between the two.
The transformation into knowledge is almost simultaneous, inevitable. I do not know whether knowledge contains the pain? I think it is the repeated, something you already know. While that happiness is a surprise, a stupor for that moment, that is it. But I do have a weird mind." Copyright: Rosa Barba, François Doury, Anne Piotrowski
