I took a ball of string
to the sea
and a driftwood piece 
wanted to play too

and there it is
a random window
when is a window a window
when it is the only place to 
peek trough ?
what about a glass house
are those still windows 
my window 
wants to be the only 
window
so lets weave a wall

What I noticed:

Windows are peculiar things, holes really, sometimes small, sometimes large , always offering a framed view of sorts 
if I make a portable window , I can choose my view ...
I can choose to focus on who wanders into my view 
my portable view helps me to shut out distractions and relish the minute

with macrophotography the lens becomes my window 
and I can choose what I peek at 
closely
again

I like windows, I like macro, I like to choose

  7. Yes, we should all have portable windows. Yours is great and so inspirational. Sort of a re-focusing tool.

  9. it's funny... your work with string and stick is powerful and evocative, but I am so drawn to the knife blade and the rock surface and how the lens of your camera forms window after window to tell the story of the string window.
