the darling of landscape imagers: a giver of depth, a revealer by obscuring; a poetic trope (m. of time, forgetting, death) generalized into “anything that betrays, or intensifies the perception of, distance” (however measured) or establishes a distance scale. Technology has long been at work clearing up latency haze across storage vistas; now puffing up mind-made mist upon your own vision is an understanding aid — your attempt to sort the world out, to unstick the glue of all-at-onceness, to make journeying meaningful — possible — again: to restore the sense of farth so you can, once again, intake things by coming up close.
