The LCD is moving from the front, or that which is in front of us, to the back, becoming a condition for experiencing rather than something which can be experienced; a new kind of seeing. This new seeing is literally a seeing through liquid crystals. Our perception becomes grounded in this material and in a sense creates a new kind of ground; a non-solid, mesomorphic ground. This ground –– which we might already be standing on –– does not offer a fixed position from which we can observe other phenomena or objects. It is a smectic ground; a smectic foundation – a layered foundation of slippage.
