Recognizing the field
Here the project begins, into the white tunnel and out of the black tunnel, descending into the shafts. The zone is dark, hot and humid and one loses the bearings. There is a feeling of dizziness, echo and a constant wind. There is no more up or down, there is no more day or night, here underneath of the earth there is dark beat. The two metal towers are overpowering.
I descend into my simplest state of mind and scan this new territory, I write words, I take in sounds, I document in the form of pictures and replicate them into drawings. I choose stone, texture and image as my prima materia. This atmosphere evokes the ancient alchemic tradition and illustrations.
From here on the alchemic principles guide my research.
