This done, he could picture himself in the 'tween-decks of a brig as he gazed curiously at a shoal of ingenious mechanical fishes that were wound up and swam by clockwork past the port-hole window and got entangled in artificial water-weeds(…)
By these means he could procure himself, without ever stirring from home, in a moment, almost instantaneously, all the sensations of a long voyage; the pleasure of moving from place to place, a pleasure which indeed hardly exists save as a matter of after recollection, almost never as a present enjoyment at the moment of the actual journey, this he could savour to the full at his ease, without fatigue or worry, in this improvised cabin.
(From Against the Grain (A Rebours), by J.K. Huysmans, 1884)
Although this is a familiar example, this sweet description in "Against the Grain"Written by J.K. Huysmans, the French decadent in the end of the 19th century might be replaced with the relationship between a PC monitor and sitting in idle though in front of it. When we go travel, can research our destination in advance on the Internet. Of course, we visit ther with expectation that our existing images would be betrayed in a positive way, however unfortunately we tend to end up "checking out the images we had in advance", or sometimes, in terrible cases, the images are even damaged because of going to the place actually.
Therefore, it might be more sensible to stay in the narrow room without landing from after the voyage, and keep watching the delicate mechanical fish passing in front of the glass of the porthole, such as desesseintes, the protagonist of "Against the Grain"(nevertheless I cannot stop traveling).
I bought flowers at random on the Internet "without seeing them directly in detail" , made the petals bloom again inside the monitor, and(attempted to)connect the branch that I picked up at random in riverside near my house "as atoll to check if it is possible to touch them or not".
I compared my 24inch PC monitor to a kind of device to reflect my imagination about "untouched" Higan or sanctuary. Now, through the cut petals that turn to the other side, I present the works as an attempt to visualize the absence or the residue od the memory.
