Gaze Space

"When nothing stops our gaze, our gaze carries very far. But if it doesn’t meet anything, it doesn’t see anything; it only sees what it meets: space is what stops the gaze, it’s what sight bumps into: the obstacle: some bricks, an angle, a vanishing point: space is when that makes an angle, when that stops, when we must turn for it to start again." [Georges Perec, "Species of Spaces"]

Almost nothing

"Before, there was nothing, or almost nothing; afterwards, there isn't much, a few signs, but which are enough for there to be a top and a bottom, a beginning and an end, a right and a left, a recto and a verso." Georges Perec, "Species of Spaces"
