Releasing Center

copernicus, galileo, grothendieck

the center of our sensory/intellectual bias has found different positions in the last thousand years. eppur si muove. the practice of re-locating the center of our thought, world, and greater phenomena, enough times eventually releases the comfort of needing center altogether. 

a relative point of view provides a point of thinking. 
but not a place, position, or object more privileged than any other.

this work is interested in the conversation of its measurements

First Light

as our universe grows increasingly cold and dark, our telescopes/satellites follow the first light, the first heat, tracing us to the moment all matter arises.
this work also follows heat, a focus on the sensory satellites sending knowledge from the untested edges of our perceptual system, bringing the experience of light, its information and knowing to a dark and silent brain.

as sculptor, it is not simply the material that interests me---
it is the experience within it.

temperature opens this exploration.
tremendous cooling allows ordinary matter to form
and tremendous heat gave its existence

both at unimaginable scales---
and yet the elements within our body carry its scale--
the experience of the supernova, [even twice or more]
the experience of gravity on a scale 100-1000x that of earth
the experience of billions of years that define becoming

the elements within the generation and evolution of our sensory organs have an experience beyond our own body---a particular trait or knowing in common---a shared medium beyond the first light.
