First exhibited in unfolding… [the artist] at the vanishing point, October 20 - November 6, 2011.

It started with a broken glass I couldn’t throw away…
which I made into the first piece I exhibited
a work that encouraged me to look through it and see how seeing can change us.

When I broke another glass, I knew it wasn’t an accident.

This one seems to be showing me how those changes [might] take place…
how coincidence creates opportunity…
how opportunity is exploited by imagination…
how imagination can use wounds to reveal song lines…
how song lines make crossing [a patch of] the infinity of existence possible…
and how the deeper we go, the lighter we need to get.

It’s so much more fun when Imagination shows you it’s more than just a broken glass…
