"To look at an object is a spiritual activity; it is not mechanical. The object is not there, you see. The object is only there when your mind meets it." Etel Adnan in conversation with Lisa Robertson • Bomb

"Judges Robert Bringhurst (Canada), Jo Shapcott (UK) and C.D. Wright (USA) each somehow read 539 books of poetry, from 40 countries, including 24 translations, between the annual deadline for submission to the prize (31 December) and the 8 April press release: approximately five and a half books per day. " PN Review on the Griffin Poetry Prize

"[W]e recognize the dialectic that we believe continues to structure architectural knowledge: Modification vs. Frugality. Enough of the Least." Lisa Robertson • Winter Anthology
