thank you. thank you for allowing me to enter your world. for accepting the movement of my body over the threshold into this landscape constructed by you. here, i will be alone, enclosed in a private scene, the gallery not-yet-open to the public. i imagine myself sitting on the floor, my back resting against the wall, my eyes closed. from this private enclosed space i will transit to an exterior location, a publicly visible location. i am not sure where…maybe a park, or the steps of a church, or the intersection of an alley. as i move between these two landscapes i wonder — if the fingers of my right hand lightly brush the palm of my left hand…will my skin feel different, more sensitive, more open to touch in one of the two locations?
