NOTE:
The panels are dark blue black with silver iridescence paint
and
the application of the paint are of overlapping layers
creating visual turbulence.
Each panel is marked with a hand drawn orange red pencil line. 
The panels are mounted on archival board.
The internal interstices / interplay of the panels
creates a pause, a silence, a leap, a focal of listening.
The spaces  between and the lines upon are significant.
The orange red line is in flux as the black blue roils.

All is shifting

and,

yet,

a serene balance

is

ACTUAL

in the

whole.

A MAN WITHOUT A SOUL

X

You’re a man without truth
A man of greed, a man of hate
A man of envy and doubt
You’re a man without a soul

All the money in the world
Will never fill that hole
You’re a man bought and sold
You’re a man without a soul

You bring nothing good to this world
Beyond a web of cheating and stealing
You hide behind your wall of lies
But it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down

You’re a man without shame
Without dignity and grace
No way to save face
You’re a man without a soul

How do you think this story ends?
It’s not a matter of how
It’s just a matter of when
‘Cause it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down

There’s a darkness all around you
To cover all you’re hiding
There’s no light in your eyes
You’re a man without a soul

Now the exits will be closing
A sad life will be exposed
No dealer and no deals
‘Cause you’re a man without a soul

How do you think this story ends?
It’s not a matter of how
It’s just a matter of when
‘Cause it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down

Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down

GOOD SOULS

Keep me in the hands of saints
With the better angels
With the good souls

Keep me in the hands of saints
Keep me with the good souls
With the better angels

Keep me with all of those
Who help me find strength
When I’m feeling weak

Keep me with all of those
Who help me stay strong
And guide me along

Keep me with all the ones
Who have a hand at my back
When I’ve strayed from the path

Keep me
Yeah, keep me
Keep me

Keep me in the hands of saints
Keep me with the good souls
With the better angels

Keep me with all of those
Who help me find strength
When I’m feeling hopeless
Who guide me along
And help me stay strong and fearless

Keep me with all the ones
Who have a hand at my back
When I’ve strayed from the path
Who help me get home

Keep me
In the hands of saints
Keep me with the good souls
With the better angels

Keep me
Yeah, keep me
Yeah, keep me
Please keep me
Please, please, please keep me
Yeah, keep me
With the better angels
With the good souls
In the hands of saints

Keep me with the good ones
Who help me find strength
You guide me along

Keep me with the good souls
You have a hand at my back
When I’ve strayed from the path

Keep me with the better angels
Yeah, keep me with the good souls
In the hands of saints

Keep me with all the ones
Who help me to home
Who guide me along
When I’m feeling hopeless
Who help me stay fearless
And help me stay strong
Keep me with the good souls
Keep me with the good souls

Yeah, keep me, keep me

reFRAME / reFRAMING

 

X

The essential idea behind reFRAMING
is that a specific crystallized demographic / person’s
point-of-view depends
on the frame it is viewed in.

X

When the frame is shifted,

the meaning changes

and

thinking

and

behavior

often change along with it.

X

Another way to understand
the concept of reFRAMING
is to imagine looking through
the frame of a camera lens.

X

The picture seen through the lens
can be
changed and reshaped
to views / experiences
of

nascent truths 

and
expansive sensory possibilities

via

EXPLORING

 an unfixed exponential spectrum
of lenses from various
angles/distances/emotional/empirical/empathetic/spiritual

KALEIDOSCOPIC

vantage points.

X

By the willingness
of even slightly changing
what is seen in the camera,
the once
‘conditioned’ / clung to’ / ‘conventional / ‘fixed’
cognitive and LIVED picture

IS

NOW

viewed
and
experienced
differently.

aNEW.

YES!

Steve Reich – Come Out 1966

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Come_Out_(Reich)

X

Reich was asked to edit down tape footage into a form of collage for a benefit for the Harlem Six and Come Out was a byproduct of the collage’s production.[1] The Harlem Six were six black youths arrested for a murder of Margit Sugar, a Hungarian refugee, in Harlem in the weeks following the Little Fruit Stand Riot of 1964.[2] Only one of the six was responsible while the lead witness is generally considered the actual perpetrator. Truman Nelson, a civil rights activist and New Yorker who had asked Reich to compose a sound collage that was separate from Come Out, gave him a collection of tapes with recorded voices to use as source material. Nelson agreed to give Reich creative freedom with the tapes that he presented him for the sound collage. Come Out was a loop of four seconds of the more than 70 hours of tapes Nelson presented to Reich.[3]
