Storming the Citadels of Enlightenment

William Burroughs said of Brion Gysin’s Dreamachine, “We must storm the citadels of enlightenment. The means are at hand.”

I am spinning my wheels in the line of creation I am undertaking for Thursday, trying to create a wearable “instrument” that changes the user’s perception of space. I was getting nowhere connecting the mandalaesque nature of my previous project with my chosen “artifact” from my British Museum visit last week via the involved viewer/participant.

It’s time for a radical break. The means are at hand.

I have until Thursday to storm the citadels and pull off something almost miraculous. Wish me luck.
