Imaginary Megastructures

RND/ to consider several imaginary/ somehow culturally computationally-parallel megastructures:

abandoned arcology hyperstructure

example rnd statement via theorist robert what/ to consider accidental homage to masdar city on earth

abandoned arcology hyperstructure

x abandoned arcology hyperstructure recently rediscovered floating on orbit around zx84 in tramodine system

with x signature 27000 mile high walls of impenetrable black nano diamond intricately patterned with outlines of once fertile rice fields/ no records remain of x once classically designed yet now mysteriously empty megacity

fourth such wall found in as many years/ big scientists now suspicious

as for life forms who once lived there – ir culture / fate still remains unknown / unknowable

rnd/ atmosphere processor

to imagine vast post industrial processor of ambient lo sci fi atmosphere manufactured by weyland corporation – where researcher billy fanward works as cheap renta-ultraborg security

blue blade megacity

cn tower toronto by caitlin cronenberg remix

remix of album cover by – some industry rapper/ arresting image of quote towering monolithic power – raw designer bleakness/ desolate oppressive – artificially brooding megastructural erection to hyper narcissism / alternative doubly inverted retro sci fi take

coogans bluff megastructure 03

zooms out to global megascale architectural power dynamic/ amerika as pre stressed cultural concrete monolith

one percent tower

via screen of anime highlander: search for vengeance via yoshiaki kawajiri

one percent tower

example ratist statement – robert what/ so welcome to impossibly distant nows – where 1% tower stands alone / immovable as much symbolic death wish as megastructure

hidden in plain view among ongoing post apocalyptic destruction of /idea of future such super image expresses uncommon chronotropic hyper dreamlike feeling without name or label

to consider image elf as visual language expressing virtual experience – hot heavy day spent hiding among dusty ruins

ir throat parched/ ir look up from ir desperate life/ monumental vision suddenly looms set against immortal mechanical sky of certain peculiar disquieting shade

feel that tower never quite reachable but rather reaches out to dominate surrounding planetary blandscape making n x own crushingly still off yellow centre of new undead world

total d0glike domination – profound / totalizing uselessness

slow sick birds wheel listless in high thermal updrafts

occasionally bodies culturally disregarded by those who exist – not live – in tower seen falling from n – exploding silently at base after long free fall

no words available here in x non place

air hot / dry / ir foever thirsty yet only flat terrifyingly banal quote ecstasy of gold exists

prey 2 megacity

prey 2 megacity

smeary faded megacity dreams of long aaa industry abandoned game which even on virtual paper easily urinates on modern prey product

terra nullius

abstract encounter /research space potentiality terra nullius – nobodys land – flickr image via lee sie

“terra nullius”

to consider mythic lore / strange narrative surrounding / arising out of / concept of ancient super massive smart concrete flyover of infinite span: vast overpass set in ontological desert wilderness devoid of life except for giant manta rays few lonely crows / hallucinogenic blue fungus which grows in skeletal eye sockets of unknown humanoid creatures

apparently n was traversed by orderless ascetic medieval monks for contemplative purposes who walked x endless lengths in state of silent uncanny wonderment until ir died of sheer fascination upon which ir were unceremoniously thrown over side

ir also climb up huge support columns with bare hands in obsessive attempts to reach quote higher levels – feat which often takes months – whenever ir fall ir awake on several highly frustrating lower levels than ir fellow travelers

x made more difficult by accumulated piles of wind blown sand at each support base /actually sand coloured nurdles

remarkably picture of x was megastructure discovered by hypermodern resarcs in dusty / legendary illuminated codex dusty / scratched with paper texture / time – pale grimoire for evoking undying

according to initial interpretations of books heavily codified texts / marginalia monks invented bizarre story that overpass exists to transport immense sentient machines of cosmic war elves on epic quest of spiritual redemption

in somewhat foolhardy line of research players plan to call out to medieval dead monks – allow ir ghosts to enter ir bodies on astral plane in order to be transported to overpass /note appearance of skulking skull king in logo

strangely no food or water needed here – despite constant feel of hunger / thirst

to walk terra nullius – simply to immersed elf in troubled appreciation of incorporeal architectural foreboding – to witness slow sounds of blood warm wind / lethargic whale like song of giant rays which echo blankly off dull smooth hard sides of x inconceivable / out landish concrete forest – quietly uncultivated / introspectively barbarous un territory
