Alternative title; ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’, from the preface to Dame Juliana Berners Treatyse on Fysshynge wyth an Angle. Found text from Gaston Bachelard’s ‘The Poetics of Space’ (pp 138-139) following a very stimulating tutorial today. I think, maybe, like an embodied, visualised quote?

Here’s the Constellation of Aspirant Beacons, to celebrate day 18 of #NaPoWriMo2021 & because #collage lets you empower moths & isolate lamposts in the night sky.
This one needs quite a bit of extra work, I think, post-NaPo, but I quite like the idea of clouds watching us in the night skies.
