There is a limit held,
expanding forever, contained.
stretching into a hazy void
Your sleepwalk is cradled, blooming
light; information and
         wilderness, light
Your sleepwalk is
         a limit held, expanding forever, contained.
There is
         a hazy void;
Your sleepwalk is a Particular Nowhere
empty space is a
         location able to receive something; the American West,
         the human body.
empty space is cradled, blooming a
         hazy void:
Large multinational corporate entities have won,
       constructing vast limit held, expanding forever, contained:
         nature of the context,
The context the land was a hazy void.

A Particular Nowhere, empty space is a location able to receive something. An algorithmic landscape growing infinitely, stretching into a hazy void. Your sleepwalk is cradled by virtual life, blooming as single celled organisms subdivide. There is a limit held, expanding forever, contained.

A Particular Nowhere was at first inspired by the ongoing contemporary expansion into cyberspace and the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 in the context of the colonization and expansion into the American West, and its depiction by the Hudson River School of painters, as well as the sublime as addressed by Romanticism.

In this context the land was a vast rugged territory waiting to be colonized.This raw expansiveness and infinite nature of reality in relation to the human body colors this sublime experience with terror and awe. In many ways cyberspace has already been colonized. Large multinational corporate entities have won, constructing vast architectures of information and light. Yet unlike the American West the frontier and wilderness of cyberspace is infinite, and itself expands with every boundary crossing.
