Phoenix of Hope
I started building the art work on day one of quarantine. At first the intention was scattered. I was angry, confused, and felt horribly manipulated. Mostly the project kept me active and sane while the world seemed to fall over itself. Eventually after some set backs to my solo aspiration, some burners and friends pulled in one morning and the Phoenix was lifted into position. I missed the digital burn space deadline. I continued on the tail, I continued working on the garden and on the sculpture.
Now the Phoenix stands like a sentinel in the Neighbourhood. It marks the entry to a tiny portal of free thinking space, self reliance and contemplation. Several people have taken comfort next to the garden fires. So if e-compression gets a little overwhelming I invite you to quarantine garden through this digital portal and to just pause for a moment and remember to breathe out 😉
