I enter into a dialogue
between the precisely-machined bright red steel sculpture
and the axonic forest behind, where trees lean into their
grim task of staying alive.
Where the city is, the forest
stretches as far back as history's recorded breath and breathing have
played a very important role in cosmology, mythology. and philosophy,
as well as in ritual and spiritual practice. Since earliest history,
virtually every major psychospiritual system seeking to comprehend
human nature has viewed breath as a crucial link between the body,
mind, and spirit that
humanity hopes will continue to exist.
