Blake beat me to saying "BLAKE"

Josh Maday said...

yeah, i immediately thought of blake when i read that line.

i am imagining a portrait of blake with his pore-babies sprouting from his skin. i want someone to paint that. someone should do a whole series of paintings:

blake in his lynchian/escherian house

blake's pore-babies

blake with bloodshot computer screens for eyeballs

blake with strings of words oozing from his ears and fingertips

"Otherwise breasts grow in my every pores."

Ah the joy of lilliputian hallucination.

Josh Maday said...

Right on, Chris. Is that the same as or similar to homeomorphism or something totally different?

Josh Maday said...

Actually, it's probably just making connections.

christopher higgs said...

I hadn't thought of those clinical examples as applicable to the idea of homeomorphism, but now that you've raised it I think it's an interesting idea.

And ultimately, I think that's exactly what D&G want to invite you to do: make those kinds of connections, in the spirit of assemblage, proliferation of lines of flight, etc.
