Visual artist Carolyn Healy collaborated with sound artist John Phillips to create a contemplative environment that addresses the sense of fragility that we each confront as humans. We were interested in expressing the wonder of being alive for an unknown duration: a blip on an endless continuum of constantly transforming energies. The contrast between feeling substantial (corporeal, rooted in the world) and feeling disembodied (unearthly, metaphysical, closer to transcendence or death) underlies both the visual and sound components of the piece.
