Pausing a resonance
"The best things ever built were only built on paper. No truly great building has been built anywhere in the world, that has not been turned into a ruin, one way or another." (Josef Ponten, "The Babylonian Tower")
When you produce yourself, what are the mechanics you apply to make yourself visible to me? See yourself as an image, how would you like to materialize your own gaze? Your eyes would become just the idea of your eyes projected into form. Where we appear to end physically we construct appearance in a shifting field made out of memories, visions, desires, objectifications, projections. We play in that field, we manifest, we escape, we trick, we hide, we reveal.
