Night Delight

allures of the dark side

  Not long after night falls, most of us fall with it, into our sheets, to not be awakened before day has its bright way with us again.

glimpse: LIKE NO/ANY OTHER | Looking at this scene I see two streets: one that is like no other and one that is like any other. It’s an everyday street, a street next door; ordinary, yet unique.

glimpse: A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE | Many New Yorkers might look down on New Jersey, some of them quite literally so, peering out of their lofty ivory towers. But who’s got the better view really? It’s all a matter of perspective. What’s more, while longing for what appears beautiful from afar, the vista might trick us into overlooking that we’re already in the place to be.

Office Prison Symmetry

behind bars: office or prison? 

Looking at it from the outside, I can’t help but seeing bars in the symmetry that comes with the sterile and institutional blueprint of office buildings around the world. see more
