These are the dreams of the spar spectra. Varying self, study of figure in a landscape.

Constructed with the birefringence of Iceland spar and ways of being in a traumatic climatic form.

“Around the edges of his form, a strange magenta and green aura had begun to flicker, as if from a source somewhere behind him, growing more intense as he himself faded from view, until seconds later nothing was left but a kind of stain in the air where he had been, a warping of the light as through ancient window-glass.”
Thomas Pynchon, Against the Day
