Tacita Dean on Ceal Floyer: "Ceal works with our cultural and social sensory understanding like a nano-technologist, crafting idea and response to imperceptible levels of experience-in-time. The best we can do as her commentators is to come plodding along behind her, trying to sum up why it is that light projected on a bulb should become the light bulb in memory. Or why her 33-rpm record that plays the click of a slide projector like a scratch is so satisfying in its Gesamt-ness, in its completeness. Is it to do with an absence of subjectivity? Is it that her work travels intact through memory, therefore staying as fresh as when it was first encountered?"
