Mark Sieczkarek's maxims for this project are:
›The whole universe is thus a gesture of erotic love, and every dancing molecule is moving in longing for an unseen lover.‹
The Persian poet, Julaluddin Rumi,
echoed this notion when,
in the thirteenth Century, he said:
There is someone who looks after us
From behind the curtain.
In truth, we are not here.
This is our shadow.
In the dryest, whitest stretch
Of pain's infinite desert,
I lost my sanity,
And found this rose.
When I am sad, I am radiant
When I am broken, content
And when I am tranquil and silent as the earth
My cries like thunder tremble heaven.
›You could have had anything,‹ you once said.
I laughed. What could anything be
Without you? All the world is driftwood
Thrown up from your sea.
