A YouTube video. 2D view of a tub of ant sand. With impossible speed, the ants drill vertical, erratically branching tunnels. Their highways form a picture.
I know a girl who as a child had a babysitter that would switch the TV to a channel with no signal and tell her that the static was a documentary about ants. And the girl would watch that for hours.
Cold defined as lack of heat but heat not defined as such. (Heat too much of a thing, cold too little.) Both states existing by the expedient of being pitted against one another. Reaching across the spectrum, a compromise of meaning.
Texture as the hissing sound of water on the pan. Entropy explained in five words. "You can’t stir things apart."
Squint and you can see.
[Invert your head]
The body of the ant as a square, migrating through the surface, as you microscale roughly four hundred times. (Split) Images (Repeat) form new dualities. (Line break.)
The constituents merge without disturbing.
