Statement for Inside/Outside: 

How can the dead thoughts be studied or depicted?

white petals, yarn, coins, lush ground, all of the little bad things that culminate

Do people visiting gravesites leave behind and keep alive energy of the dead?

Atrophy as a decline into chaos. The dead can think & you think of the grave as a

cocoon

Decomposition is how we inherit knowledge from the dead.

It could be imagined as a body in growth and decay or as a house (a room) in constant

flux.

Death is a process

Segments- when do you come back around? You catch up or stay with

us.

A house (a grave) shelters daydreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house

allows one to dream in peace. By finding that there are no true opposites reveals the

connection of all Selves. Opposites aren’t tied together via reference only, but within

the cycle/circle on which they flow.

Gravesites as cocoons-

nerve cells die in 3 to 7 minutes

kidneys, liver, heart die in 30 minutes

skin cells, less than 12 hours.

Your body grows into another after 7 years or after death. What will be your

metamorphosis?

the body is in the ground, the body is inside a room, a house, your house. the body is

changing, looking, and uncertain. the Body is you and you are uncertain and your name will change.
