Albuquerque Lecture

Following the introduction mentioning my residence in England and the United States, I will be discussing my geographical roots, as I think they have some bearing on my work; actually, they’re intertwined with it. What I would like to do today is concentrate on two phases of my work that connect very well. In fact, I have recently completed what I consider to be a kind of circle. And I would like to give this lecture a title, the first time I’ve done so: “High and Low, or the Sublime and the Ordinary.”
