working on a performance venue with/for Sandy Baldwin
in Second Life on my usual platform, I decided to revive
older works, miasmas, spheres, walls, make everything
transparent, everything so that I might proclaim, I am
the stuff of dreams, working and walking through walls
and spaces, among physics and choreographies, among
particles and particulate matters. so much so that the
Alienware gaming machine I'm using began stuttering, so
much rendering on the fly to handle, an impossibility,
as if the breath were taken from us, human and avatar
alike. it is true I control nothing, these are the
thinnest of sheaves of the enlightenment in these dark
and darker times, some think psychedelic, I think
originary, primal, what would have been before us, the
absence of eyes, of sight, the absence of hearing,
taste, touch, all those other senses huddled in the
well of gravity. you must look through, around the
margins of the image, just there on the other side is
something similar, is not me, not us, something just
there, the volume at infinity, something similar
