Concavities to Convexities
The Chrysalis - the protected, enclosed space that nurtures our vulnerable selves, that provides a safe place to reflect and experiment - prepares us for and leads us to the open spaces, the domed spaces, the I-can-see-for-miles spaces where we become stronger, more solid, more confident in exposing our souls and hearts to the world and responding to its uncertainties.
The background photographs used in this video were taken in Montana , on the Oregon Coast and at Monument Valley, Joshua Tree, Yosemite and Aqua Caliente Tahquitz Parks.
Our bodies are repositories of our memories and experiences– not just in our minds, but also in the fibers of our muscles, in the expressions of our faces, in our movements, in our rhythms. The shifts in this piece reflect body rhythms: background (eye blinks), journal (respiration), images of travel (upper left, daydreaming/theta brain waves), nature (upper right, deep sleep/delta waves), family/friends (lower left, problem solving/beta waves) and random memories (lower right, meditation/alpha waves).

Skin Muscle Sinew
Body as living, aesthetic sculpture - one more firm, more fit, archetypically more vital than the older wis/zened one, yet both evoke curiosity and reflection of life's phases and choices.
