IMAGE TAPING #3: DNA of commerce and empire (mutant)

Wherein I add text from random bits of media that I am currently consuming to images that I am working on:

his was nothing like Tokyo, where the past, all that remained of it, was nurtured with a nervous care. History there had become a quantity, a rare thing, parceled out by government and preserved by law and corporate funding. Here it seemed to be the very fabric of things, as if the city were a single growth of stone and brick, uncounted strata of message, age upon age, generated over the centuries to the dictates of some now-all-but-unreadable DNA of commerce and empire."

it is like some sort of a "ghost taxi" ready to take to an unforgettable trip throughout the centuries...

I find Paris like that. The French don't care but the city seems to weep history and culture from every stone.
Is it because I know it's history? Would it feel the same if I knew not where I was?
Our eyes (brain) can be wreathed with roses or bitter, black bitumen.

lviv is a living museum


greetings Chook, I agree knowing the history can make an experience richer (even if less pleasant... ex., nazi graveyards everywhere here). i suppose it is inevitable that the locals take it all for granted at some point.

Montmartre district is my favorite part of Paris... intoxicating.
