“The conceptualization of the urban environment as a text parallels that of architectural objects as words of a language. If the city becomes a text, the citizen becomes a reader. ”

A man in a bottomless cesspool, I know you,
“...the environment we perceive around us can be seen as a series of continua that the language system divides into meaningful parts and relationships between the terms used in identifying those parts. It is also important to note that we use a wide range of concepts and conceptual distinctions that actually have no referent in the reality that is independent of language and its concepts. ”

Home is a space, supposed to make me feel secure, to comfort me to sleep every night or sometimes morning, but this never has been the case. In a room, in that corner near the window, has done nothing but torture and the constant subjugations of physical discomfort. The bed bugs have brought topography to the next level by creating a leather map of islands; on spots where the skin of my body would rest on when I sleep. - s.r (2013)
