Questions of scale …

… Threepenny: Kay Ryan, On the Miniature. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

We do feel magic in certain small things. Perhaps because we imagine that operations in an unimaginably tiny dimension would work…better? …differently? In any case, by changing size, so that we can’t get in there anymore, generating rooms too small to actually occupy, we give ourselves the possibility of everything turning out otherwise than it does here. We loosen an imaginative space that gets larger as it gets smaller.
