E-lit example of quickness

3 03 2011

I find that the e-lit “still standing” perfectly displays the values of quickness.  Due to the nature of the work the reader must stand still in order to read a glimpse of the actual text.  As such the time and rhythm of the work is in a sense dictated by this mechanic.  The reader can only read once the text gathers around his still frames shadow.  Obviously the readers normal pace and orientation is going to be effected by the restrictions and as such the quickness of the piece is also determined.
