Untitled (the edifice. restored. veers/exalts but was not total)

The decision to restore a structure is a precise intervention in which its possessor has discovered or rediscovered (a) distinguished characteristic(s) that over time have faded. To restore is an effort to return to a previous setting that operates against time by repairing what appears to be decayed and removes particular narratives that mark a space. However, despite the efforts and techniques utilized, a restored space can never exist in its original condition. It must look toward new narratives and embrace new potential.

‘Untitled (the edifice. restored. veers/exalts but was not total)’ is a series of digital illustrations that attempts to investigate the transition between ruined and restored spaces and the movement of time.

Madness of the Day (excerpts)

Posted in Uncategorized by supergoing on September 9, 2010

“Am I an egoist? I feel drawn to only a few people, pity no one, rarely wish to please, rarely wish to be pleased, and I, who am almost unfeeling where I myself am concerned, suffer only in them, so that their slightest worry becomes an infinitely great misfortune for me, and even so, if I have to, I deliberately sacrifice them, I deprive them every feeling of happiness (sometimes I kill them).”

“She was reduced to saying futile things: ‘The truth is that we can never be separated again. I will follow you everywhere. I will live under your roof; we will share the same sleep.'”

– From Madness of the Day, Maurice Blanchot
