"Forces of abberance" Voutsina Lida

The lecture tries to describe how daydreaming works as a mechanism of constructing the completely personal space of the human being. Having the Poetics of Space of  Gaston Bachelard as a base, we start from the outside stimuli and we head to the inner self through memory and imagination. We end up to realize that this movement is not a completely focused and pointed to the core movement (the essence of the being) but a diffused and never stopping one. The self is just a name given to the mass of experiences and memories which form the personality and the history of the human being: it’ s more like a string which keeps a few things together but with the difference that in this case the string does not exist.
