About ‘A silent place, walks around Malta’:
…one must acknowledge a surrounding environment of sound or language in order to recognize silence. Not only does silence exist in a world full of speech and other sounds, but any given silence takes its identity as a stretch of time being perforated by sound.
– Susan Sontag, The Aesthetics of Silence
