a kind of biography

(a butchered version)

Make things and decades: props fill space. Matter remembers you. Pulling information into shapes of greater care - alchemy.

Training: strictures to force your resolve (these last three words cancel each other out).

Four cardinal points: to be inside four places is to be outside of all of them.

Peripheral vision: the intersection of one line with another.

Tactics for orientation: anchor yourself to a single gesture when shifts in scale bring cognitive vertigo.

Telling time: drawing captures ticking minutes in the repetition of a mark. Everything moves and everything stays the same.

Lead Story: it seems obvious to measure things from the inside out, but what is the unit of measure?
