infinite calm versus infinite hype (the Bachelard series 2 of ?)


infinite hype


infinite calm 

“The word vast is a vocable of breath. It is placed on our breathing, which must be slow and calm.... I begin to think that the vowel a is the vowel of immensity. It is a sound area that starts with a sigh and extends beyond all limits.... Like some soft substance, it receives the balsamic powers of infinite calm. With it, we take infinity into our lungs”

- Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space 

infinite hype + infinite calm combined
