Condensed

"Triumph of our I over our Weight, with its treacherous plots to murder our speed and drag it into immobility's ditch. Velocity = scattering + condensation of the I. All the distance covered by a body is condensed in that very body."
F. T. Marinetti, Geometric and Mechanical Splendor and the Numerical Sensibility, 1914
Quoted in Cinzia Sartini Blum, The Futurist Re-Fashioning of the Universe, 1996

Joseph Stella - Telegraph Pole - 1917
