A collection of systems, structures and schemes that can be used as a rudimentary basis to begin to explore links between literary and visual pursuits and the schemata that are latent in our personal geographies, the cosmos and all else inbetween. A basis to begin a consideration of how creative production seeks to grasp what it means to be in the world.

Memory is not an instrument for exploring the past but its theatre. It is the medium of past experience, as the ground is the medium in which dead cities lie interred.
