The edge is the division
What is known is always from the past.
Through knowledge the new is a reworking of the old.
The sum total of knowledge is culture.
Culture is the veil through which we describe nature.
The process of nature continues despite our analysis.
Our analysis is a part of the process of nature.
The process of nature must include the actions of man
whether or not they are destructive.
Man's description of "nature' as something separate -
between "nature and "Culture", is an illusion.
"Nature" and "culture" are the same thing.
There is no division.
Both of Chris’s works and writings are beautiful, I have read it many times. I love his work because he didn’t intention to romanticize the nature, nor to send any message from his art practice. He is concerted how certain types of encounter with the material world give insight to our “inner nature”. From his work I can see his respect to the nature, I can see his trace and process, with minimal touch of the material to present the truth. One of my favorite is “Tidelines”, the way he presents work is like given the material a open narrative.
