Note for the day

This is the question that the night quiets and the dream fights; what will morning bring?

And it falls through the cracks :)....crazy day yesterday so am a day late and many pennies short. But let's try and do the best we can, shall we?

So here's post number yesterday.

Yesterday, I did a long lecture on modernity and modernism. However, we did not really touch upon the implications of newness, the wonder of imagination, and the joy/ hopelessness of experimentation. And it's difficult without material artifact to grasp the simultaneity of structure and breakdown. I think I mulled over it more than I realized. Because I last night I dreamt of this:

Antonio Gaudi's Sagrada Familia -- exterior

Antonio Gaudi's Sagrada Familia -- interior

The Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família (Basilica and Expiatory Church of the Holy Family, more popularly known as the Sagrada Família, is a large Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926).

Rather sinister, especially given how much I was thinking about Nietzche and nihilism.

I apologize if I'm not making much sense; figuring this out has been inspired anomalous thought. On structure, repetition, belief, and breakdown. I was also reminded of Yayoi Kusama's work and its hypnotic quality. And eerie-ness.

Tell me what you think?
