Was ist Raum, wie können wir ihn
erfassen und gestalten?”

Walter Gropius,

The Theory and
Organization of the
Bauhaus
  (1923)

This post was suggested by the Bauhaus song
"Bela Lugosi's Dead" at the beginning of the
1983 Tony Scott classic "The Hunger."

"At the point of convergence
the play of similarities and differences
cancels itself out in order that 
identity alone may shine forth. 
The illusion of motionlessness,
the play of mirrors of the one: 
identity is completely empty;
it is a crystallization and
in its transparent core
the movement of analogy 
begins all over once again."

Extended Metaphor

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 5:17 AM

The Washington Post  on yesterday's presidential Sunday—

"Accompanied by his wife, Michelle, and daughters
Sasha and Malia on the mild, overcast morning,
Obama walked through Lafayette Square
to St. John’s Episcopal Church.

The Rev. Michael Angell delivered a sermon
from John 6 about the extended metaphor
of eating Jesus’ flesh….

The Obamas, all wearing shades of blue,
participated in Holy Communion before
motorcading back to the White House."

In related news—

" We praised him and then we ate him,
all courtesy of a generous catering budget
from film director Tony Scott."
