A blank space is both freedom and imprisonment. I have no frame of reference, there's no way of navigating this. I have no frame of reference, there are infinite ways of navigating this.

Took a walk while tripping through uni after dark. No one there at all. Felt like I was in an abandoned city and all the space was for me to set up some new order in
And my first year on campus I stayed during spring break when nearly everyone goes back home. Same feeling. Because I was 19 naturally I drove around with my windows open playing music at ear splitting volume just to hear it reverberate off the surrounding buildings.

I was thinking this. the human made environment without people as an empty stage to project onto
a railway platform is a stage. it isolates each actor and makes every pose and gesture they make seem meaningful. it's very good to sit on a bench and watch the people on the opposite platform perform their existential angst. they're not doing anything. they're waiting.

Ballard also tunes into this with Concrete Island which acknowledges how tantalising the spaces we see through our car windows are. the motorway verges and traffic islands.

as children, projecting ourselves into these spaces which are real, but can never be accessed. railway sidings too.

to quote myself

"There's something to be said here about 'revealing the map' in a more literal sense and the strange way discovering new places in the area you live feels like you are unlocking hitherto hidden parts of your own mind. As if there is a one to one correlation."

and using that logic what do this forbidden, impossible spaces represent? what state of being do they correlate to?

I'm sure there's a VR thing already where it's just a blank space for leaving yourself notes and doodles.

It's a film where J-Lo goes into the mind of a serial killer and he has this bizarre, internal world where he's some sort of demon king.

i've done all this stuff. Poured my heart into it. Imagining you responding as I write. Elucidating further in ways that I Couldn’t. riffing on it. taking it somewhere new. but no, just blanked, disdainful, cruel.
