EURYDICE ASCENDING A STAIRCASE II

“[The cellar] is first and foremost the dark entity of the house, the one that partakes of subterranean forces. When we dream there, we are in harmony with the irrationality of the depths.

But it is like this for every object, that only come to us definitively altered, including upon the screen of our brain. All things thus offer themselves without hope of being anything other than the illusion of themselves. And it’s good this way.”   Jean Baudrillard,   “Paroxysm – The Perfect Crime”.
