Yeah yeah yeah, you saw the other wall the other day. But here’s to another emptied surface. Stripped to its at-rest, uninhabited state. But still flush with signs of life, or at least of former life.

What struck me was that it’s not a picture of a room, but rather of a wall. There’s a minor bit of three dimensionality thrown in that confirms its room-ness, but really it’s about a wall.

What does a single wall say about somebody? Rooms tend to emulate the personality of the resident, but can that be conveyed in a single surface as effectively? (1/4? 1/6 as much?)

To the ceiling view, then eyelid blackness.
