Chimera’s euphoric dream.
Space trips at the centre
Tearing reality at the seam.

It is late and you are alone. You’re somewhere public, walking along the street and you approach a crossroad. As you approach the curb you notice that the lights are red, and, even though you know that there is no one around, even though you know that there is no danger, you still hesitate.
Let us first consider the public sphere, and, in particular, the role of the individual; both their responsibility and rights, within it. The public sphere is a meeting place; of people and ideas; it is, therefore, inherently a place of sharing. One cannot enter the public sphere and be alone, for there are always reminders of others; from people to structures. When entering and operating within this space we are required to acknowledge laws and customs and then willingly sacrifice some freedoms in order to participate. Choosing not to adhere – which is always an option – leads to social exclusion, or, in the most drastic, incarceration and perhaps death.

“This is the same street
As that one, you know,
That one that girl was on
One woman says to the other
Over a glass of Sav Blanc,
And tap water
