Embedded In The Flesh Of The World series explores memory embodied; reactivating
gestures, marks, punctuations recalling encounters with/in the world - being outside with the wind howling around me, debris/leaves swirling; running across different terrain, sometimes falling, slipping being sucked into the mud; hiding in the grass, swimming in oceans, lochs, rivers; touching, feeling, sensing, almost belonging. Using my sensuous physicallity to create with natural/manufactured, new/discarded found materials. I choose to leave the marks of my passage, my making just as those marks have been left on/within me through my encounters. I am embedded in these forms.
Loud and billowy is the sky as the storm approaches. A storm of light, clearing and chattering, rather than a dark, turbulent, growling storm. Birds wheeling and shrieking, race ahead of its path like waves on the sea rolling and cresting, chased by the tails of the wind. Filled with energy, with portents, with knowledge in abundance, this shouting wind.
Title from the sonnet poem High Flight, by John Gillespi Magee 1941
