a void place...

" Because whatsoever I conceived deprived of this space, seemed to me nothing, not even a void, as if a body were taken out of its place should remain any body at all, of earth and water and air and heaven, yet would it remain a void place, as it were a spacious thing. "
Augustine (of course)

These are some images shot from the completed installation.
A space filled and activated.
A space marked out and restricted.

While I was installing the below portion of this work, a band of little children ran through the tunnel.
I watched as they dived into the space beneath the fabric sculpture.
Frozen in air.
Motion and excitement of little voices and bodies.

There was no fear there. Just enjoyment. No hesitation, just movement.
Let's make a life of that.
