Terra You were gone long before us Taught the cells they could adore us We still mourn your tender lies Terra You remind me of Arrakis I wove all of you through velvet So I know its all a lie Terra or René And all the other things I was planning to say Ziemba is the name of a spider who was burned at the stake Terra I believe you more than ever For the names keep getting better Weaving truth into the lie Veritas Its my very own renaissance That was born long before us Now i’ve given it a name Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh Terra Oh the relics that you left us In exchange for our confessions We all live for tender lies Veritas Deep within your well of wishes Virgin daughter of prometheus Lives the mother of all lies Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh Veritas in Terra Veritas in Terra ohh

How quickly utopia becomes a nightmare I built my world free from fear, but something else trembles the air If I play God, will it help sweet songbirds sing me their prayers? I built utopia, it became a nightmare Now I only care for prayers of songbirds (I built utopia, it became a nightmare) How quickly utopia becomes a nightmare I built my world free from fear, but something else trembles the air If I play God, will it help sweet songbirds sing me their prayers? I built utopia, it became a nightmare La la la la la Now I only care for prayers of songbirds Sweet songbirds sing

Sensation type: Unloveable, morbid primitive grotesque Prickly old people’s hearts Hairsplitting stupid old head Ambitious women can’t help being ugly Look at me Look at me I will recall I will recall Tongue-slipping all too human Profane shadow I will recall Grotesque echo A pure mirror and a damn prison Profane shadow Sham prototype Hysterical too quick to cry Built to break Delicate rose got a complex Silly old bleeding a mess Sensation type: [main melody] profane eyes blind eyes Unloveable, morbid, primitive, grotesque spark cure Prickly old people’s hearts tongue slipping all too human Hairsplitting stupid old head as if i needed a weapon Ambitious women can’t help being ugly profane as a shadow or echo Look at me a pure mirror and a damn prison Look at me

Vero you say with none hidden reward but it funnels through Ignite your present stream before time returns to die Listfully written or pulsed with a gun, names on a page It’s true what they say, its all true and none There’s no one, there’s no one, there’s no one who can rewrite what’s done. Ignited Vero belied something lost, we swim in red but not still The days are war, the moves are few, the light deceives the cold of home

about

ARDIS = Earth, the necessary changes having been made [mutatis mutandis].

Ardis is an imagined parallel world and a very real place. It is inhabited by opening portals using song and scent. An ardis is the point of an arrow, a nexus in time and space, shooting toward the unknown future. This particular ardis is the pregnant present as it incubates future vision.

Part 1--
Scale: Building to City
Portal: 5 songs, fragrance, scented candle, video, live concert
Topography: Dense urban development; towers and bridges set atop one another, a confusion of images and symbols
Vantage: Oculocentric, the beginnings of Ardisian-thinking, the conflict between hubris and utopic desire, the limitations of individualism; the body as an ant in an army, or a blood cell in an artery.
Air Quality: Smoky, Clouded, Empire Decay, Overwhelming
Sound: Loud

Part 2--
Scale: Comingled Bodies to Bedroom
Portal: 5 songs, fragrance, body lotion, video, live concert
Topography: Ardisian boudoir, lit by a pink moon
Vantage: Touch language, soft plush, tangled tongues and limbs, a delightful jumble, the way time is stretched like taffy during orgasm
Air Quality: Muggy and steamy, human animal musk, enfolded
Sound: Intimate, whispered, immediate

Part 3--
Scale: Glacial Lake to Forest/ Mountain Range
Portal: 5 songs, fragrance, room mist, video, live concert
Topography: Three crystal blue lakes, each with their own distinct personalities, named Omega, Ozero, and Zero; Mountainous and densely wooded; diverse fauna and web-like tributaries bound for the ocean
Vantage: Geologic time, the intelligence of a complex ecosystem, matter as it travels through cycles of decay and birth
Air Quality: Expansive, liquid and misty, a pleasant and transportive breeze
Sound: Adrift via clouds, constantly in motion and characterized by continually transforming relation; the sound is the listener and the listener is the sound
