think outside the box? what's a box? you must be nuts.

I've been trying to eliminate all preconceptions. when i walk down the street, i try to see the traces people leave, look for the invisible, what's in between. i used to work in a mall bookstore (fall 1990, just after returning from hitchhiking cross-country) with a guy who was trying to hold two perceptions simultaneously. he was a student of philosophy. i try to see the space between people in new ways, think of the cubists, Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase. Trying to move outside of time, to see not flash photo moments but the flow. I don't think it's working. But it gives me something to think about.
