Gorges of Intimity

A hillock above the lake. Over its rim protrudes an edifice the shape of a ship’s bow, whose rim is turned to face the sky to become one with the outline of another hill in the background: the fractal infinity of the slope line brought to the finite measure. There where the hill is repeated, in a not so big neighbouring peak, squats a circular segment in the bow as / on the roof: breaking and thickening. The constructed and foreign body raises itself pathetically from the ambience of the eruptive natural bodies, competes with them and plays with their lines, parallels and with vectors invisibly engraved into the landscape.
