THE VULNERABILITY OF NATURE IN THE HANDS OF MAN, 2010

RIVER HUNT - THE VULNERABILITY OF NATURE IN THE HANDS OF MAN, 2010

The visual counterpart to my poem A Falling Through, we are presented with a figure, framed by long theatrical curtains forming a corridor into a bright white light. In the figures offered hands, a garden bird lies motionless. The leminscate symbol, which represents infinity, can be seen here above the figure’s head. The word leminscate is actually Latin for ribbon, a length of which if twisted and fixed together at both ends produces an infinite looping two-dimensional plain.
