2007 – Working on Dream Matter No. 19.
A video created using images of Dream Matter No. 19 with the words of Alan Watts which inspired the concept behind Dream Matter.
” When you make something, you put it together, you arrange parts, or you work from the outside in, as a sculpture works on stone, or as a potter works on clay. But when you watch something growing, it works in exactly the opposite direction. It works from the inside to the outside. It expands. It burgeons. It blossoms. And it happens all of itself at once. In other words, the original simple form, say of a living cell in the womb, progressively complicates itself, and that’s the growing process, and it’s quite different from the making process.” ~ Alan Watts
