001: flow, energy, and transformation
inspired by Andy Goldsworthy (and our discussions today), document and investigate,
through text and image - this idea of energy, flow and transformation through the city.
Anything can have flow. Look for yourself. Many parts of the city are designed to flow like their natural counterparts.
Every curve in the city must flow, to adapt to the boundaries where it reacts to nature. The city must be ready to fight back to maintain its place.
Energy constantly radiates from each city block. How can it not, when there are millions of living beings crawling through it. Cities are concentrations of life.
The city's glow is often my biggest reminder. The city is so full of energy that it does not simply sleep. It creates light like nature does, creating its own world in the darkness given to it.
Transformation happens everywhere in a city. During the day, many surfaces remain hidden. They lurk in the dark, waiting for night. During the night everything becomes a different animal.
Fog is an interesting beast, allowing the city to transform into something much more mystical.
Reflections allow the city to double its size, to grow, and move in ways it doesn't move without the addition of water.
An added note about energy: its amazing what someone can do just by speaking about the same things we all hope for on a daily basis. Shamelessly for Obama? Damn straight I am. Has anyone else seen that much energy in the target center at any other point this year? Not a chance.
