An exploration of simultaneous presence and absence in Architecture and Landscape. The site of memory as metaphor[m] and narrative. Architecture persists the metapsyche glimpse into the infinite. A gestalt of space and time relative to an obscur sensory perspective. Architecture defines place within space. That the vague sphere of mental and psychological perception extends infinite past any boundary. It is these boundaries that awaken the thought of a simultaneous absence and presence within nature. Dimension is witnessed and felt by our need to justify this simultaneity. In this way, Architecture binds and manipulates the infinite [space] into a place of memory. It can then be conceived, conjured, realized, and memorialized as a metaphor of space and time. For the progression of Architecture, Architecture must be a fragment and artifact of the collective narrative. I'm not designing buildings. I'm creating graves to mark where conception and creation dance infinitely.
