"An indiscreet astronaut said that when he was in orbit he could see what was happening on every street and in every backyard: 'It was like I was right there, ten feet above the streets and yards and fields...'. They shut him up fast.
Brion Gysin was the only modern painter to have captured this space-eye view, in which time is spread out spatially on the canvas."

William S. Burrough (Reprinted from Brion Gysin - Catalogue Galerie de France)
