Wandering Between Worlds

We all live under the same sun,
We are all made from the heart of a dying star, You are awareness, We are awareness, Nothing is separate. x

{Dream Weaver } — Lenore Tawney (1907-2007)

Creation is a defiance of ordinary verbal communication. Its origins lie in the ineffable part of one’s own being and are much closer to the silence of the universe, than to its noises and verbalizations. Art is always just beyond language. Each work seems to be called up from a bottomless chaos and despite the magic order it finds in the artist’s creation, retains always the memory of the original chaos to which it is destined to return. The man of deep insight knows that authentic life is not lived arbitrarily but is governed by a secret mesh of invisible images. From Scraps of Memory: Findings from Lenore Tawney’s Notes: Poetry.

WE ARE ENERGY. ENERGY CANNOT BE CREATED OR DESTROYED, IT JUST CHANGES FORM. A CLOUD COULD EASILY BE A WAVE IN THE SAND.

{ Wildflowers + Explosion of colour in the Utah Desert } — The Badlands region in the American West is famous (and infamous) for its arid and unforgiving landscape, which is decorated by sharp and eroded spires of stone. If you catch it at just the right moment and in the right conditions, however, these apparent wastelands can give birth to an extraordinary explosion of colour and life in form of beautiful Wildflowers.

The condition of alienation, of being asleep, of being unconscious, of being out of one’s mind, is the condition of the normal man.

—R.D Laing

SINCE A THREE-DIMENSIONAL OBJECT CASTS A TWO-DIMENSIONAL SHADOW, WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO IMAGINE THE UNKNOWN FOUR-DIMENSIONAL OBJECT WHOSE SHADOW WE ARE.

—Marcel Duchamp

WHEN I LET GO OF MYSELF TO IMAGINE, IM ACTUALLY COMING BACK TO MYSELF BECAUSE THEY’RE ALWAYS PROJECTIONS.. FANTASY GIVES US AN ACCESS TO OUR OWN REAL EXPERIENCE.

BANNED TEDX: The Science Delusion - Rupert Sheldrake

“I’m taking the radical view that living organisms are living organisms–not machines. They’re just what most people would think they are … I think the whole universe is like an organism. It’s born small in the Big Bang, it’s like the hatching of the cosmic egg and after that it grows and as it grows new forms and structures appear within it, like a developing plant or animals. It’s not like any machine we know.” 

IF ONLY THEY KNEW THAT MAGIC WAS CREATED THROUGH THE FORCE OF WILL, NOT BY WISHFUL THINKING. PRIDE WILL WALK THROUGH THE TUNNELS OF SOUL. THIS IS WHERE THE GREAT SEA OF MOUNTAINS STRETCHED OUT TOWARD THE HORIZON. A WHISPER OF WIND TRIED TO STIR ITSELF, THEN GAVE UP AND SETTLES BACK TO EARTH.

—Creative Spirit

"There are things that cannot ever occur with any precision. They are too big and too magnificent to be contained in mere facts. They are merely trying to occur, they are checking whether the ground of reality can carry them. And they quickly withdraw, fearing to loose their integrity in the frailty of realization. ”

{ DESERT BREATH } — El Gouna, Egypt

ON MARCH 7 1997, THE CONSTRUCTION OF “DESERT BREATH” WAS COMPLETED. 

AT SAME MOMENT THE WORK WAS TURNED OVER TO THE FORCES OF NATURE, TO BEGIN THE SLOW PROCESS OF ITS ABSORBITION,
BY THE LANDSCAPE THAT GAVE BIRTH TO IT.

THE SYSTEMATIC DOCUMENTATION OF THIS PROCESS
IS AS IMPORTANT TO “DESERT BREATH”.

AS THE DISPLACEMENT OF SAND THAT WAS USED TO CREATE IT.
THE INSTALLATION BECOMES THROUGH ITS SLOW DISINTEGRATION, 
AN INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE THE PASSAGE OF TIME.
