Spatial Line
installation, granary
Plasy Monastery 1995

A line receiving and giving energy on the principle of the conscious connection with the principle of immortality. A line of a geographic intersection of a place-through its penetration of people, it is a mark of existence at the moments of the consciousness of the mutuality of this principle. A line also penetrates the energy of people who are unaware of this principle and are only permeated by it.
