The mythical Pheonix act. Took me over a year to conceptualize and create this thing. Built it up too much in my head, other ideas intercepted, sat around with lots of fabric and no idea what to do with it… but with the help of one miss most excellent Crystal Titus i was able to actually make it happen. woot! Photos by Amber Gregory. and my cellphone.
“Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgement wage war against your passion and your appetite. Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul, that I might turn the dischord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody. But how shall I, unless you yourselves also be the peacemakers, nay, the lovers of all your elements….for reason, ruling alone, is a force confinining; and passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction. Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of passion, that it may sing; and let it direct your passion with reason, that your passion may live through its own daily resurrection, and like the phoenix rise above its own ashes.” – Khalil Gibran
