A Temperament, Yves Sheriff

“A Temperament” wishes to illustrate, through a simple narrative construction, the geometry of a specific sensation: the tickling that happens when someone is observing something in an open angle. The horizontal lays of sound, image and meanings are moved across by the idea of an ivy, which establishes the sensitive relationship between intuitions and language. To help myself, I used some parts of the beautiful book of Gaston Bachelard, Intuition of the Instant, where he enjoys to observe the complexity of a sensation, stuck in time’s elasticity, and the limits of our words, unless it is poetry “a kind of desire for attention, in the dark now; the duration being in grammar and syntax, like an opportunity.”
