16003 'A Captured Moment in Time'

150 sheets of ripped cardboard standing tight together on a stone base

like a book with many pages / ephemeral in nature

a semi hard outer shell / the core, subject to transformation

unknown the degradation

succumbed to the elements / slowly releasing its content

falling apart, desintegrating, disappearing / composting, releasing

nourishment for that what is unfolding

releasing all that was captivated / time, growth, content, intent

slow release as needed / releasing into the world

a captured moment in time unfolding

16002 'Fairies, Dragons, Warriors + Computers in the Land of the Unknown, a picture book'

(a series of 7)

investigation - searching - hunting - skipping

divergence - set aside - exploration

investigation - set new intent

preparation - getting used to - learning

observation - caught attention - further exploration

looking back - caught attention - accepted situation

further exploration

setting limitations - setting boundaries

highlighting - conclusion

fixating - finalizing - finished

16001 'Historical knowledge emerging out of the bank of Kawakawa River, New Zealand 1999'

(a series of 21)

passing in silence silent observing

being present

rhythmical cyclical seasonal

being present

going out coming in standstill

being present

receiving letting go changing

being present

infinity eternity in between

being present

and so the historical knowledge emerges
