Method of division
Integrating into the natural fabric of existence, there is nothing more affirmative than a positive connection with the cosmos and our planetary locus.

“Intuition is not duration itself. Intuition is rather the movement by which we emerge from our own duration, by which we make use of our own duration to affirm and immediately to recognize the existence of other durations, above and below us.” – Gilles Deleuze
Arising in connection with external circumstances, latent ambiguity apparently manifests. Crumpled kraft paper placed directly behind a storefront window sets-up a curious boundary plane of vagueness.

Natural beauty purifies the soul.
“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” – John F. Kennedy
Danger on the rocks
Overlooking a boat parking lot, floating object concentration presents itself.
