ARTPIL / Prescription .080
In the sound of a few leaves

 

One must have a mind of winter
To regard the frost and the boughs
Of the pine-trees crusted with snow;

And have been cold a long time
To behold the junipers shagged with ice,
The spruces rough in the distant glitter

Of the January sun; and not to think
Of any misery in the sound of the wind,
In the sound of a few leaves,

Which is the sound of the land
Full of the same wind
That is blowing in the same bare place

For the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.

Wallace Stevens / The Snow Man

Thomas Ralph / Darkest Hour (still)

Darkest Hour / Thomas Ralph

Beverly Pepper

New Particles From The Sun / Beverly Pepper

Tatsuo Miyajima

Tatsuo Miyajima: Innumerable Life / Buddha

Tatsuo Miyajima’s philosophy, as told through these works, is that the future is not created by the genius of the individual, but by the collective body.
