Edges

Edges provide useful points of reference for locating ones self space. Without edges there is no difference, just flatness and monotony. There is no divide to cross, no changing state.

I once spent 3 hours in a darkroom preparing 16mm negative for a film laboratory in Toronto.  It was the first time I had done this and was quite stressfull as the film was was being prepared for a project somewhere far away and remote and there was the risk that if I didn’t wind the emulsion the correct way then all the footage shot would turn out blank.

It was disorientating to be deprived of light for such a long time while trying to perform a delicate task of  film handling . I had to rely heavily on my sense of touch and my memory.

I rely on sight as much as the body relies on the force of gravity

Without sight or gravity things stop working properly , food doesn’t go down, memories fail to form. It is harder to recall .

Where was I?

Oh yes, swimming.

In dialogue with the sea

and moon

Sensing, breathing, moving,  thinking

Forgetting
