"Fragmentary totality, in keeping with what should be called the logic of the porcupine, cannot be situated in any single point: it is simultaneously in the whole and in each part. Each fragment stands for itself and for that from which it is detached.”
        Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe and Jean-Luc Nancy, The Literary Absolute

Porcupine is centered around the notion of the fragment and its relation to the system. Every work and poem in the show have a sensibility of extracted moments, time in its purest state. It is a search through language and objects that asks questions about use rather than meaning.
