Baroque Threads

I project a self-contained annex, contiguous to this experiential reality, plastic but not communicating directly through windows, doors, or passages — not a node in decentralized hyper-space.

Leibniz writes that “monads attain differences among themselves as a result of internal processes that highlight aspects of their complexity.” In his baroque terrain, perception precedes logic and depends on perspective; I am absorbed by an unfolding of spaces, additional volumes, folded within curtains and body cavities.

The face of an on-looker like a vortex causes me to become increasingly conscious of the movement of my eyes. Within the interior spaces of a transhistorical baroque, gold fish swim in a reflecting pond.
