Life for Sale - ALEPH



 My mornings - the only place on earth where all places are


beeing bounded in an infinite space...


 Living in my fake plastic city...


 Where everything is for Sale


 all the love arrows from a polystyrene man , for sale


 
 If I just turn and run....


 
 or  fly away with this paper plane


 or just run to that infinite point...


 We will stay

 we will sell our silent scream

and our thoughts for Sale

 Empty space for Sale

 Silver and Magic for Sale

I don't belong here


I want a perfect soul

...and perfect people


'I shut my eyes -- I opened them. Then I saw the Aleph.'



walls for Sale

ALEPH it is the symbol of transfinite numbers, of which any part is as great as the whole.



...........................
"The Aleph?" I repeated.
"Yes, the only place on earth where all places are .

...........................
 I saw horses with flowing manes on a shore of the Caspian Sea at dawn; I saw the delicate bone structure of a hand; I saw the survivors of a battle sending out picture postcards; I saw in a showcase in Mirzapur a pack of Spanish playing cards; I saw the slanting shadows of ferns on a greenhouse floor; I saw tigers, pistons, bison, tides, and armies; I saw all the ants on the planet; I saw a Persian astrolabe;
..........................
I saw the circulation of my own dark blood; I saw the coupling of love and the modification of death; I saw the Aleph from every point and angle, and in the Aleph I saw the earth and in the earth the Aleph and in the Aleph the earth; I saw my own face and my own bowels; I saw your face; and I felt dizzy and wept, for my eyes had seen that secret and conjectured object whose name is common to all men but which no man has looked upon -- the unimaginable universe.
I felt infinite wonder, infinite pity.
..............................'

These photographs are certainly outside the box. I like the way you think. Fantastic! I have some on my blog if you click on Outside the Box titles. They are usually posted on Mondays. Otherwise, mine look like everyone else does. See you next week.

A struggle between two very different spaces is well-documented by your photos and words. Well done.

Bitch said...

I agree with everybody.
Your very best work!!!

J_on_tour@jayzspaze said...

Hi Wind, you know what I think of your life series posts and this one is no different. It's deep where you bear your soul, artistic and with the text at the end ... almost prophetic ??!!
Whether it's for the caption or the artistic talent, there isn't a weak shot to be seen here.
I like the subject material of "if I just turn and run", the angle of the table pointing to the arch in "where everything is for sale" (excellent choice of colour on that one) & of course the" infinite point "... haha ! The last image is outstanding though in every way... well done on that one.
regards to you, J

Bibliotecaru said...

Interesant acest aleph... El este totodată un număr. Mai precis este numărul elementelor din mulţimi infinite.

Primul aleph, numit aleph zero, este numărul elementelor (cardinalul) numerelor naturale. Cred că o astfel de interpretare lărgeşte foarte mult sensul succesiunilor de imagini.

Rizalenio said...

Hi, Wind. What a surreal experience looking at your photographs and reading the captions. I love reading those written words. Felt like I just woke up and dreamt of this. Thanks a lot again, my master. You're really the best artist to follow. Standing loud claps for you.

shaman said...

Foarte inspirate foto. Asa este, cand ai ochi pentru frumos... :)

Luzia said...

The second pic on this post is incredible! The words are like sweet bitter dreams to me. This post "sounds" like an old melancholic song..... Thank´s my friend for this view in the soul of photography. Hugs from Luzia.
