Where do you go?


Site 2: curved pine
We went deeper into our woods to find another site for more
AMBIOTIC forms that were in storage, breathing so much
easier here than in the plastic storage boxes. Every once in
awhile I also need to get out of my plastic box and get time
in the woods, not just outside, but deeper and away from the
daily pressures, to find natural abundance. Where do you go?

How does snow change you?


The swamp tamarack site a week later, +25F, after a snowfall
Even after blizzard conditions last weekend, and 5 inches of
snow later in the week, the AMBIOTIC (ambient, amniotic,
biological, symbiotic) forms are holding up - made of sewing
pattern paper, wire, gel medium and beeswax.
.
With clean snow, I can think more clearly.
How does the snow change these? ...or change you?

Site 1: swamp tamarack, -12F & 35mph winds
The AMBIOTIC pear forms just after they were hung
near the debris of a tamarack tree that was struck by
lightning in 2005. These sculptures were exhibited at
the SOHO20 Gallery in NYC a year ago.

New York was great, but they seem at home in the swamp.
