Amidst flux and impermanence

Amid the flux and impermanence of the commercialised, globalised metropolis,

the urgent challenge is to find soil in which one can be rooted,

the stability of being rooted or grounded in an erratic aesthetically, materially and symbolically unstable environment in which one faces a constant barrage of persuasive if not pervasive gestures and proposals which are designed in some way to appeal to our instincts of fear, hunger, identity & desire.

The task at hand is to seek out the means by which one can ground oneself, root oneself and ultimately guard the fragile human mind whose unconscious and vast depths are troubled, tempted and torn asunder in ways no campesino, no fellah, no farmer tolerate as their aching, sweating bodies endure a cycle of tasks the mind can meet whether on windy slopes or in midday heat!
