I'm facing a 12th century stone wall, the foundation wall of the original palace of the Louvre. I begin with Nietzsche's building material.
March 3, 2009 6:23pm via web
The wall is the surface of its own submerged history. While the objects overhead remain, the spectator blocks the view of the archeologist.
March 5, 2009 5:27pm via web
The archeologist and the librarian find their own traces. (1. An iceberg, upside down. 2. The world's longest conversation.)
March 9, 2009 6:49am via web
We follow the passage along the wall. There are people there, each one bringing another part of a missing equation, never to be completed.
March 11, 2009 2:38am via web
At each corner the wall offers suggestions and options, but also confusion and disorientation. The wall behind offers no anticipation.

The Dungeon is somewhere ahead, and the Well before that. At the end is the Crypt. The wall gives support and it is also my tabula rasa.
March 14, 2009 5:30am via web
The wall begins its path of visibility just there, where a model of the whole palace sits. First you reflect, then a detail becomes large.
March 15, 2009 3:07am via web
I imagine lines beginning to appear, a sparkle is almost visible, the hum of power writes but not its own name. The wall prepares itself.
March 15, 2009 6:57pm via web
Only parts of the wall are ever visible, the totality is in the mind. The text is only complete when you arrive at the Crypt.
March 16, 2009 7:07am via web
The wall’s stones are signed, yet each one remains anonymous. Who writes here? I shall, said the archeologist, with my shovel.
March 19, 2009 3:56am via web
Some walls invite you to ask: what is on the other side? These walls, they describe only their own limit. They take you but ask nothing.
March 20, 2009 9:07am via web
Bright lines form words as they illuminate first themselves, then the wall. The stones and words add up, providing a whole wall and text.
March 21, 2009 3:36pm via web
You distrust the preoccupation with appearance and the wall registers its indifference. The history offered is both profound and mute.
March 29, 2009 12:56pm via web
#14. Almost as a reward, the light takes us deeper into its own self-reflection. Yet you provide the meaning, again to be found there.
March 30, 2009 5:13pm via web
Fifteen stones in place, all out of shadow, these lit words make visible both the viewer and the viewed. The wall, the passage.
