Haven’t you always wanted to walk on water?
I have admired Maya Lin’s work for two decades. The thoughtfulness, the scale, and the amazing balance of the discipline of architecture and the emotional vocabulary are controlled yet create both visceral reactions that then trigger intellectual responses.
Her investigation of water/waves and their distinct states have created internal conversations that have manifest themselves in my hieroglyphics that have come after Egyptian Waters.
I dream of walking on the waters, floating in the space between the waves.
Now I will make the equivalent of a pilgrimage to the Wave Field at Storm King. I will walk on the waves, I will lie and stand between the waves unable to see beyond the lead wave or the following one. I will photograph my point of view. I will capture video of the changing light. I will stand on the waters suspended in time.
