  • Personal Narrative: Some Space To Some Place

    Some Space to Some Place There is a place that is neither here nor there. I have always been drawn to the in-betweeness. I have spent so much of my life, whether spending time on the airplane or learning new language, exploring places I have never been. When I first travelled internationally at 7, everything was unreal–sitting on a chair for 13 hours, looking out the tiny rounded window to see endless view down below, calculating time lag.

Following Gilles Deleuze’s methodology I refrain from querying what something ‘is’, what place is. Instead, I seek explanations that embrace the ‘how’ of place–attaching, connecting, echoing, and becoming–in which I can position my practical work, weaving cable ties to provoke and evoke.

  • Personal Narrative: A Space Odyssey

Presently, peculiar for a brief time, the deep chasm of space gave way for the hull of a small republic transporter just above the expansive orbit of the planet; jumping out of hyperspace for…

  • Personal Narrative: My Interest In Space

    At seven years old, I was awestruck by the universe on the big movie screen. Star Wars had me hooked; I NEEDED a telescope so I could learn about what lies beyond the sky I see at night. My parents bought the telescope I yearned for and helped me look at the moon on clear nights. Together we watched shuttle launches on television and read about expeditions online. A few years later, they took me to see a shuttle launch at Cape Canaveral. We arrived just before launch because the visitor’s center…

    In 1986, the world experienced a tragedy that had lasting effects on many people, myself included. While at the young age of nine years old at the time, I can still remember that day as though it was yesterday. That day, schools had closed in my county due to snow.

    before it got too crowded, and I decided to intrude on employees and other shopper’s personal space. I went up to the first employee, a young man in his late teens/20s, and asked him where the notebooks were, while standing maybe a half of a foot away from him, making complete eye contact. Immediately he started to back up and was a bit flustered before telling me where to look. According to my roommate who was watching from a distance, he also somewhat raised his hands from his sides, like he…

  • Proxemics Theory Of Personal Space

    Hall (1966) describes personal space as the “small protective sphere or bubble that an organism maintains between itself and others” (Hall 1996: p112). In the book ‘The Silent Language’, Hall proposed that while animals use their urine and physical posturing to mark their territory, humans do something similar using our personal space. The proxemics theory suggests that the distance between individuals help to control the amount of sensory information exchanged and thus, helping to control the…

    going to feel very uncomfortable until you move. I believe it is only ever okay to share your personal space if you are good friends or dating that person.
