Author Topic: Liminal Kenopsia | Familiar Emptiness  (Read 673 times)

Searching the word "Liminal" will bring you images of this variation:







These images, they feel so familiar. Somber but they bring back a feeling of vague happiness.
Some sort of false nostalgia, with a sense of loss, but it's a loss that has long since been accepted.
But something, even with that in mind, is clearly wrong. No one is here, it's empty which makes the
sense of loss feel a lot more prevalent.

These are images without a contextual background to give them a specific location. If you do know their location, it's likely because
you've actually been there or because it was one of a million like it, not because you saw something highly identifiable.

These images represent Liminal Kenopsia.

The feeling of a transitional space that is empty. An area you don't think too much at the moment, but as you return there time and time again, it compiles in your memory. 
So when you break from it, you don't notice it's gone. But when you have something that strikes that familiar chord, it doesn't bring back a specific memory either.
