  • **Mimicry and Legendary Psychasthenia**

    From whatever side one approaches things, the ultimate problem turns out in the final analysis to be that of distinction: distinctions between the real and the imaginary, between waking and sleeping, between ignorance and knowledge, etc. -- all of them, in short, distinctions in which valid consideration must demonstrate a keen awareness and the demand for resolution. Among distinctions, there is assuredly none more clear-cut than that between the organism and its surroundings; at least there is none in which the tangible experience of separation is more immediate. So it is worthwhile to observe the phenomenon with particular attention and, within the phenomenon, what is even more necessary, given the present state of our knowledge, is to consider its condition as pathology (the word here having only a statistical meaning)--i.e., all the facts that come under the heading of mimicry.

    For some time now, for various and often undesirable reasons, these facts have been the object of those biologists with a heavy predilection for ulterior motives: some dream of proving metamorphosis, which, fortunately for that phenomenon, rests on other foundations, others, the clear-sighted providence of the famous God whose bounty extends over the whole of nature. Under these conditions, a strict method is essential. First of all, it is important to list these phenomena very rigorously, for experience has shown that there are too many bad explanations pushing them toward confus...

    We are looking for partners to develop sustainable technologies to provide the basic elements of life.

    We would like to work with companies that have identified the need to break away from the old methods to find new materials and manufacturing methods that will tackle head on the major problems facing this planet.

    Areas of interest include packaging, new plastics, high efficiency lighting, water production, water treatment, construction, air conditioning, heating, stainless steel fabrication, furniture design and transportation.

    We want to stop talking about it and get on with it.

    To paint a little of picture of the description, I can see something modern about his work. His work seems to be inspired by something that we haven’t seen before or that will become our future.
    I think what makes this work beautiful (as I mentioned before) is the constrast between the lighting on the signs revealed throughout the photo. You can see here, the importance of little things in a big picture. Here you can you tell ,that the street sign poles are really important here in this image and the contrast that such makes with the darker imaging.
