There is singularly nothing that makes a difference a difference in beginning and
in the middle and in ending except that each generation has something different
at which they are all looking. By this I mean so simply that anybody knows it that
composition is the difference which makes each and all of them then different
from other generations and this is what makes everything different . . .

All bundled, bunched, dangling and clustered from the rafters, gathered like sculptural pieces; imposing large bulbs though not all switched on, look rather like metal flora growing from the framework.
