""ON SIGHT"" is a blog about aesthetics by Jamal Cassim. Faith, sex & art.


Reality is fucked: far more unstable than we think.

Nothing is certain. Not your name, your face, your identity; not the shape of a room or your sense of the world.

Every struggle we have is against this uncertainty; everything we chase is an effort towards the sublime.

But whether you make a religion of work, pursue power and success, or money, try to please god, satiate yourself with drugs, food or sex — the sublime is always unattainable.

So all we have left is the trying.
