At night, we go walking. The heat of the swamp relents, castle walls darken, lights go on, feelers move outward, possibilities dilate. What are we doing in this place? How did we get here?

At night, we go looking—searching, gleaning, making. The earth begins to breathe from beneath the concrete, between the cracks, outside the landscaping. Where are the others? Where can we meet?

At night, we start imagining. The day’s husk of cynicism and dread is shed. Maps emerge from our movement. We shake off your demands for a clear line. We choose, instead, to collapse the space and its experience. We draw maps of memory, myth and artifact; of action, knowledge, and desire.
