“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

The Infinity Machine

Cardiff and Miller. If you're in Houston you should see it, it's about two blocks from where I live and it's like walking into hyperobject space for sure. Mirrors and frames cause you to see how objects are wrapped in their very own hermeneutical clouds of unknowing. A sound as of two planes of glass sliding over one another forever. An uncertain dimsionality. If Matthew McConaughey had encountered this at the end of Interstellar, he would've been in trouble.
