  1. Space and Culture


Space, outside ourselves, invades and ravishes things:

If you want to achieve the existence of a tree,

Invest it with inner space, this space

That has its being in you. Surround it with compulsions,

It knows no bounds, and only really becomes a tree

If it takes its place in the heart of your renunciation.

Ranier Marie Rilke, translated by Gaston Bachelard in The Poetics of Space
