On the w i r e. Amid the dazzling lines.
When you dance amid the dazzling wires.
Lines define the space we move in, by constraining it in their between, around, above and beneath. Their essence remains constant, no matter how one looks at them, they endure in that perpetual loyalty to lowliness. As if in a constant struggle with theirs masters, the mutable spaces constrained by them, and constraining their constancy, in permanent assaults to the steady state.
A fascination for these spaces amid lines and wires gave birth to some images, collected over the years, whenever the camera was there to capture the struggle. Rarely.
