Images are carried across time and geographies, and through cultures, and peoples. Some take longer than others to land. These echoes and refractions are favored in museums and libraries with a wide and sweeping scope. One can argue that it only took 189 years and a good dose of chance and luck for the distant gesture of a Japanese woman to produce the shadow of a rabbit on the surface of a Ruscha print.
