Notes for a Retrospective
#1 Leaves falling from the Tree of Life : spring comes to the garden.
#2 The Big Bang : God throws his paintbox at the biggest blank canvas ever.
#3 Therapy : I found these patterns on the edge of nowhere.

#4 The Tower of Babel : a tumour of a million cancer cells, all emitting their unique electromagnetic signals.
#5 Landscape without figures : we pick out the pieces which best fit the landscape we have within.
#6 This egg yolk is not an egg yolk, but a fungus : nothing came of it.
#7 Speak to the hand, the ears aint listening : Adam and Eve talking to their three children about the consequences of sin.
#8 Pornography : the three children put into practice what their parents told them.
#9 A string bag : the strings vibrate to the distortions of time and space.
