I’ll keep this brief.

This movie was on last night – which exposed me to this scene – which reminded me of this documentary which may or may not still be on Netflix – which reminded me of this quote:

“People who do not work with their hands are parasites.”

– Jenny Holzer

Holzer’s Truisms are meant to be seen. Most people have only read them, maybe on a palm-sized wood plaque or as a projection boldly burned onto the side of a building. But in the documentary About Jenny Holzer (2011), the quote above is audible. The words actually come from her mouth.
