Microscope, probably early 19th century, England, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (so pretty it is truly art, I'd have something like that at home just to put it as a dandy prop against the white wall and look at it lovingly)

The flyer for the DSM-V exhibition at Vito Schnabel, NY, May-June 2013. DSM-V is short for The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the primary manual used for the diagnosis of mental disorders which newly revised 5th edition has been published just by the end of the exhibition. The collection of artworks was completed in relation to the key questions that are also rised in the discussion of DSM and psychiatric diagnosis in general: what are the norms of conventional perception and behaviour? What is inclusion and exclusion? How to discuss such matters?

Dearest Mama,

I must tell you what my opinion of my own mind and powers is exactly—the result of a most accurate study of myself with a view to my future plans during many months. I believe myself to possess a most singular combination of qualities exactly fitted to make me preeminently a discoverer of the hidden realities of nature.



Firstly: owing to some peculiarity in my nervous system, I have perceptions of some things, which no one else has—or at least very few, if any. This faculty may be designated in me as a singular tact, or some might say an intuitive perception of hidden things—that is of things hidden from eyes, ears, and the ordinary senses…This alone would advantage me little, in the discovery line, but there is, secondly, my immense reasoning faculties. Thirdly: my concentrative faculty, by which I mean the power not only of throwing my whole energy and existence into whatever I choose, but also bringing to bear on any one subject or idea a vast apparatus from all sorts of apparently irrelevant and extraneous sources. I can throw rays from every quarter of the universe into one vast focus.

Now these three powers (I cannot resist the wickedness of calling them my discovering or scientific trinity) are a vast apparatus put into my power by Providence; and it rests with me by a proper course during the next twenty years to make the engine what I please. But haste, or a restless ambition, would quite ruin the whole.
— Ada Lovelace in the letter to her mother, 1841 (she was 26 at the time. I wish I was like her. Confident)
