the fourth space

those spaces in between life, thinking, the physical world, and humanity

Keri Smith

“…And with these the sense of the world’s concreteness, irreducible,

immediate, tangible, of something clear and closer to us: of the

world, no longer as a journey having constantly to be remade, not as

a race without end, a challenge having constantly to be met, not as

the one pretext for a despairing acquisitiveness, nor as the illusion of

a conquest, but as the rediscovery of a meaning, the perceiving that

the earth is a form of writing, a geography, of which we had

forgotten that we ourselves are the authors.”

–Georges Perec, “Species of Spaces”
