Abstract

A highly idiosyncratic and poetic meditation upon attention, this essay considers the phrase, walking mornings, as a complex of possibility framing a reconsideration of technological theories, practices, histories, and futures. Among the many superlatives with which digital culture and commerce bestows itself, the essay claims, we may perhaps add, that never before have human beings been as surrounded as we are now by so much empty possibility. Never before has there been such potentiality harnessed only to displaying itself. In highly personal terms, the essay considers how we might recover a certain necessary silence in the face of a horizon of infinity, how to attend beyond the distractions of the foreground. Walking mornings is a trope for possibility, moving through gathering potentialities, turning and returning toward endlessness within the silence of ourselves.
