Phantoms Among Imaginations

An empty apartment implies that no one lives there, but one could wonder about the imaginations and memories lingering in those silent rooms. Through the images, the apartment becomes a representation of the mind, hosting scenes of raw imagination, unbothered by rational thought. We might consider a fully decorated room; a space loaded with memories and life experiences, to be a life goal. In this situation, the thought of nothing being there appears most unsettling. While we let these spaces challenge our imaginations, they propose an undefinable number of options and opportunities. The mere multiplicity of the situation is destined to make one overwhelmed with the potential of that empty space, fearful of a state of heightened entropy. Resulting in a kind of dangerous emptiness, one that feels indefinable, and eventually reveals itself as the opposite. We feel the space between the decisions, an uncertainty which makes it unable to get a hold of a choice that feels right.
