My world is strewn with beacons; they are forms in the landscape, objects to mark a specific place. I watch them, examine them. They set my eye in motion. I move on. I retrace my steps. Nothing is ever the same, for what I see today may seem entirely different tomorrow.
The formal object I observe is a shape that bears an identity, a character that I can relate to and that manifests itself in fresh ways each time I see it. That turns them into landmarks in the world I set out into. And to which I return. Always in a different manner.
Going back does not mean standing still, even if it feels that way at times. Until I spot something I hadn’t known before, and find that I can return and move forward at the same time.
Landmarks: objects that I know and do not know.
