Example text

My grandmother used to say 2 On the early 70s TV series Night Gallery I saw an episode about what were called the sin eaters. Food was set around the dead individual. The sin eater was brought in and he stuffed himself with the meats, breads, and sauces. As he ate, he sucked the individual’s sins into his fat, leaving the dead translucent. Memory was gorging till I could feel the skin on my stomach stretch over my grandmother’s gaze. This is the softer version of the architectural technology Foucault describes as the panoptic.

Even at home I was away. In the first part of the 20th century an obscure German scholar who was denied his terminal degree which would have granted him entrance into the university system, who made his living writing small pieces for journals and the scripts for a radio show for children, wrote an autobiographical essay about his childhood in Berlin in the years before World War I. This was Walter Benjamin. He spent his life going home to a place that no longer wanted him or even existed. In many ways this is an odd reading of Walter Benjamin’s career.

He was inseparable from a slender candy cane shaped cattle stick, and instead of a truck, drove a short, boxy Buick sedan around the farm. At his heaviest he approached 180 pounds, though his waist was almost as thick as his chest. He stood perpendicular to the ground, a peculiar reminder that he was for a time a mathematics professor and that he was the decisive line in the algorithm of pieces wherever he was. In photographs, his head is perched like a long necked ibis staring into space over the others.
