Filed under: General,Geometry — m759 @ 10:30 AM

The post Outer, Inner of July 16, 2016, contained the following
illustration of a quote from "An Ordinary Evening in New Haven" —

An image from yesterday morning pictured a link to the
Feb. 10, 2014, post Mystery Box III: Inside, Outside.

That post, shown below, offers a deeper interpretation of the
Stevens quote "an interior made exterior."

Outer, Inner

Filed under: General — m759 @ 11:00 PM

A detail from this morning's 6 AM post

An Ordinary Evening in New Haven, XXII

Professor Eucalyptus said, “The search
For reality is as momentous as
The search for god.” It is the philosopher’s search

For an interior made exterior
And the poet’s search for the same exterior made
Interior: breathless things broodingly abreath

With the Inhalations of original cold
And of original earliness. Yet the sense
Of cold and earliness is a daily sense,

Not the predicate of bright origin.
Creation is not renewed by images
Of lone wanderers. To re-create, to use

The cold and earliness and bright origin
Is to search. Likewise to say of the evening star,
The most ancient light in the most ancient sky,

That it is wholly an inner light, that it shines
From the sleepy bosom of the real, re-creates,
Searches a possible for its possibleness.

— Wallace Stevens

This morning's 6 AM post linked to a more recent obituary in the news

"… while Jules and Judy were still living in Brooklyn Heights … 
Jules collaborated with his former roommate, Norton Juster,
by illustrating what was to become the children’s classic
The Phantom Tollbooth . Neither author or illustrator had
a clue as to how to get this unlikely work published, and it
was Judy’s idea to take it to a mutual friend . . . ."

The Search

Both the screenshot and the Chautauqua photo (by jbi46 at flickr.com) were taken on July 19th, 2010.

The screenshot appeared in the post "Pediments of Appearance" (which also included two much less complex images).

Some background —  A webpage on  Analytical Cubism and a related search in this journal.

From Wallace Stevens, who appears at top center in the image above—

From Ben Brantley’s

“Her life, her voice says,
was devoted to discovering
‘the inside on the outside,

“They did it from
the inside to the outside.
And from the outside to the in.
And that profoundly
moved me then. It was…

that I ever experienced.”

“The search/ For reality
is as momentous as/

It is the philosopher’s search/
  For an interior made exterior/
  And the poet’s search
for the same exterior
made/ Interior….
