A journey of unknown destination that begins for an unknown purpose can be dismissed as aimless wandering, or embraced as a catalyst for learning and the development of knowledge. Maybe this journey begins with apprehension—where to go, what to do? Can it begin at any point, by simply noticing the immediate circumstances of the present? Almost every point of space links boundlessly in every spatial and temporal direction, containing an infinite pool of possibility and, therefore, research potential. What imperceptible things rest in these interstitial spaces? What could tempt things that are everywhere all the time, but never seen, into showing themselves for a moment? What tools could make these things visible, or even begin to represent something unpresentable? Perhaps the best that can be done is to build a framework, an architecture,a bridge. Maybe this is the only way we can get closer to the unpresentable, or to anything.
