The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #187 - The Arcades Project

02.20.13

One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives
for movement and action, their relations, their work and leisure activities,
and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.

It's a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm
at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.
We'll endeavor to return before the last red line trains (around midnight).

On this bike ride, you might expect:
- inconvenient passageways
- oblique strategies
- Oulipian constraints
- disorientation
- reorientation
- "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- amateurish enthusiasm
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- karaoke
- geocaching
- full moon picnics
- traffic median tea parties
- rivers that no longer exist
- smell tourism
- Couchwick v2.0

Furthermore:
- usually 20-35 miles
- usually some hills
- a medium pace (probably not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- few stops, short stops
- but we're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light
- victory donuts!

This week:

The Arcades Project


The asphalt roadway in the middle: teams of harnessed humans, human
carriages. Procession of human carriages.

The street that runs through houses. Track of a ghost through the walls
of houses.

Most hidden aspect of the big cities: this historical object, the new metropolis,
with its uniform streets and endless rows of houses, has given material
existence to those architectures of which the ancients dreamed -- the labyrinths.
Man of the crowd. Impulse that turns the big cities into a labyrinth. Fulfilled
through the covered passageways of the arcades.

The arcade may be conceived as a mineral spa. Arcade myth, with
legendary source.

Conclusion: erotic magic / Time / Perspective / Dialectical reversal
(commodity -- type).

Architecture as the most important testimony to latent "mythology." And the
most important architecture of the nineteenth century is the arcade. -- The
effort to awaken from a dream as the best example of dialectical reversal.
Difficulty of this dialectical technique.

The true has no windows.

Awakening as a graduated process that goes on in the life of the individual
as in that of the generation. Sleep its initial stage. A generation's experience
of youth has much in common with the experience of dreams. Its historical
configuration is a dream-configuration. Every epic has such a side turned
towards dreams, the child's side. For the previous century, it is the arcades.
But whereas the education of earlier generations explained these dreams for
them in terms of tradition, of religious doctrine, present-day education simply
amounts to the "distraction" of children. What follows here is an experiment
in the technique of awakening.

Amid the smoke of battle, on the printed picture sheets, is smoke in which
spirits rise.

(BRING A LOCK and some quarters; longer stops than usual; little in the way
of hills; under 20 miles.)
