Blast by Wyndham Lewis. Conceived by the Anglo-American journalist and writer Wyndham Lewis, Blast was a short-lived journal that ran for just two issues as a manifesto for the avant garde art movement vorticism. As well as Lewis's manifesto, Blast contained poems and prose by Ezra Pound, TS Eliot and Ford Madox Ford, and reproduced the work of key modernist artists, such as David Bomberg, Edward Wadsworth and Jacob Epstein


Virginia Woolf | "She knew that something kept us from disintegrating. Woolf's art searched for whatever held us together. What she found was the self, the essential thing. Although the brain is just a loom of electric neurons, Woolf realized that the self makes us whole. The fragile source of our entity. The author of our consciousness."


Virginia Woolf (1882-1941), a central figure in the Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals who's books included To the Lighthouse, Orlando and A Room of One's Own, with it's famous dictum, 'A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.'
