PaJaMa, an acronym for Paul-Jared-Margaret, was a collaboration between the artists Paul
 Cadmus, Jared French and Margaret French. Influenced by Carl Jung’s idea of the 
collective unconscious, these three artists known for their magical realism in other media 
collaborated in making photographs at the beaches of Fire Island, Provincetown and 
Nantucket as well as New York and New Jersey during the late 1930s through 
the early 1950s.

Poems are en route | Paul Celan, 1958

John Everett Millais, A Message from the Sea, 1884

"A poem, being an instance of language, hence essentially dialogue, may be a letter 
in a bottle thrown out to the sea with the—surely not always strong—hope that it may 
somehow wash up somewhere, perhaps on the shoreline of the heart. In this way, too,
 poems are en route: they are headed towards. Toward what? Toward something open, 
inhabitable, an approachable you, perhaps, an approachable reality. Such realities are,
 I think, at stake in a poem."

Paul Celan, 1958
Celan’s speech when he won the Bremen literature prize

A new reality / An event of reading | Cassandra Falke, 2016


 "The event of reading, like the event of loving, is singular. Just as our love for another 
creates a new reality as it unfolds, each reading of a particular text makes us lovers 
without precedent. Reading creates in us new ways of loving, and thus new ways 
of being. Or it can. In order for a book to work on us this way, we have to open 
ourselves up to an intentionality and signifying practice that originates outside of 
our own "egological sphere." Because we cannot anticipate the way we will be
 changed by an event of reading, we commit ourselves first to the act of surrender 
itself and, through that surrender of our own intentionality, find ourselves remade."

Cassandra Falke, The Phenomenology of Love and Reading, 2016
