Vincent Valentine and his Zones of inattention.
One day, perhaps, there will be a sign of intelligent life on another world. Then, through an effect of solidarity whose mechanisms the ethnologist has studied on a small scale, the whole terrestrial space will become a single place. Being from earth will signify something. In the meantime, though, it is far from certain that threats to the environment are sufficient to produce the same effect. The community of human destinies is experienced in the anonymity of non-place, and in solitude. (M. A.)3 hearts

Here are some random thoughts and feelings about this experience:
The ocean of our ancestors is reproduced in the watery womb of our mother and is chemically related to it. Ocean and Mother. In the dark liquid of ocean the relentless masses of water pushed past the first sonar ear. As the ear of the fetus turns in its amniotic fluid, it too is tuned to the lap and gurgle of water. (R.M.S.)
Now we are grown lidless ears, our entire bodies are. With these drones you seem to climb herds of erupting Krakatoa volcanoes. We listen to the darkness. Then the glimpses of light. Roars and punctuation sounds mark the way for the blind delirium, at first slave of the solitude, then gradually like a mantle that covers new acoustic cyclicalities.4 hearts
Photographer Roland Miller have been photographing space exploration-related programs, facilities, and people for over 25 years.
This is an photographic exploration of the American space launch and research facilities that played a crucial role in the early period of space exploration. The goals of this project are to preserve and portray these abandoned, deactivated, and repurposed sites through photography that surpasses the official government approach to documentation and to lend historical and artistic insight to the subject.4 hearts
