POLUS

Polus is a city suspended in full-bloom. Amidst a bounded clearing, an assemblage of urban rooms unfold from a compacted centre. Decadent interiorised worlds—dome, gallery, garden square—proliferate endlessly, each room filling and spilling into others. Continuous doorways, stairways, colonnades, connect interiors such that the outermost room might always be traced back to the central chamber. Growth is enacted via arborescent sequencing that tends towards supersaturation and the eventual overwhelm of its own logic. From the centre-out, enfilade arrangements give over to unravelling passages that promote fragmentary encounter.

.

This constructed fabric is located amidst an encroaching surround of another abyssal structure: a wild and un-mappable expanse. Hyper-verdant ecologies—dense forest, sharp cliff, flooding lake—invade the urban periphery and render it unstable. As the two conditions intensify and forge, they come to be seen as mutually enframed entities.

Patterned with darkenings, congealments.

The curtains — ruby corduroy blood,

Sheer blood-falls from ceiling to floor.

The cushions the same. The same

Raw carmine along the window-seat.

A throbbing cell. Aztec altar — temple.

...intoxication is the success of a sacrifice whose victim would be the sacrificer himself. Bataille recognized the ultimately comic character of the sacrificer who, at the limit, remains flawless. No doubt intoxication is also comic because the inebriate does not completely disappear, afterward feeling pitiable, sobered up, and sometimes disillusioned with intoxication itself.

Beings and worlds are folded, woven or felted out of beings within beings, worlds within worlds, scales within scales and rhythms within rhythms. As such they are states of what Gilbert Simondon called “surfused” or “supersaturated metastability” that take their fabric (psychosomatic, filmic, tectonic) to a threshold of crisis…the fabric reaches a limit of compaction or intensity and it begins to dilate and unravel.

This sense is infinite, and each variation is itself singularly infinite. Each image is a finite cutting out, by the mark of distinction. The superabundance of images in the multiplicity and in the history of the arts corresponds to this inexhaustible distinction.

It may seem that Ulysses violates the techniques of the novel beyond all limit, but Finnegans Wake passes even this limit. It may seem that Ulysses demonstrates all the possibilities of language, but Finnegans Wake takes language beyond any boundary of communicability. It may seem that Ulysses represents the most arduous attempt to give a physiognomy to chaos, but Finnegans Wake defines itself as Chaosmos and Microchasm and constitutes the most terrifying document of formal instability and semantic ambiguity that we possess.

It is like the increase and decrease of a more or less dense compound along melodic and harmonic lines, its aural surface traversed by a continual, obsessive, obsessional, movement. But there is an altogether different thing as well: a sort of central erosion that first arises as a threat among the bass and is expressed in the trill or wavering of the piano, as if one were about to abandon the key for another or for nothing, tearing the surface, plunging into a ghostly dimension where the dissonances would come only to punctuate the silence.

MISE EN ABYME.

Meaning “to put in the abyss.”

.

.

ABYSS.

Compound of a- “without” + byssos “bottom.” From the Latin abyssus, meaning “depths of the earth or sea; primordial chaos;” early 14c. as abime “a bottomless pit” and from the Greek abyssos (limne) “bottomless (pool),” hence, generally, “enormous, unfathomable.”

A look at the ambiguity of the arcades: their abundance of mirrors, which fabulously amplifies the spaces and makes orientation more difficult. For although this mirror world may have many aspects, indeed infinitely many, it remains ambiguous, double-edged...The whispering of gazes fills the arcades.

What I enjoy in a narrative is not directly its content or even its structure, but rather the abrasions I impose upon the fine surface: I read on, I skip, I look up, I dip in again. Which has nothing to do with the deep laceration the text of bliss inflicts upon language itself, and not upon the simple temporality of its reading.
