J. G. Ballard

The Enormous Space

1989

The impossible structure at first appears to be man-made and conventional. We understand this familiar scenario from countless films and we, like the story's protagonists, base our expectations on the laws of physics as we know them. As the structure is explored further the author describes changes in its curvature which imply increasingly impossible dimensions. Our imaginations are as plastic as the structure seems. We see the changes and feel the increasing agoraphobia they induce.
