On Spaces In-between Voids:
There is always something happening in-between things. It’s never just you or it, but that space—that void—where meaning happens. We often speak of these poles as “subject” and “object,” but sometimes they switch parts. In relationships, things always get fuzzy. It’s a little blurry. Categories fail.
I’ve noticed that these holes are everywhere. I think about how to scoop them up and encapsulate them. What would I use? And when the spaces change shape and shift, would that tool be able to handle it? Or, like a mutated virus, would it be undetectable to the old tool? Would I then have to upgrade?
On Limitations and Language:
As humans, our abilities are full of holes. To compensate, we construct devices—often using technology or other proxies—to extend our limitations. But the space between where we aim and where we fall is a gap, too. One device we use to extend our limitations is language. Within this system of signification, there is an inherent “slipperiness” in which meaning becomes malleable.
Twilight is my favorite time of the day. The time where (if you didn’t know any better) you wouldn’t be able to tell if the day was starting or ending. It could be both at the same time. It is, and it is not—a quantum quandary. A fuzzy area that allows one to be open to new ways of perceiving.
In 2009, a philosopher asked from the back seat of his father’s car, “Is this real life?” Since then, we have been trying to answer that question."
