365 days of peace: a tired peace

It’s exhausting to fight all the time. To live life as a constant succession of battles is emotionally and physically draining.

This one was made on the border of the linear park and a cemetery in Williamstowm, MA from a tire & some twigs. 119/246

365 days of peace: a concrete peace

Is it solid or formless?  Can’t it be both? 117/248 I made 117 from concrete and glass tile.

365 days of peace: an ad hoc peace

what is the ideal precondition for peace? is there one?   To truly appreciate peace does it need to be forged by chaos and violence? Or can lasting peace rise from less destructive origins? you make peace with what you have. Sometimes it’s a mess Sometimes it’s not, but you still do the work. Everyday. 115/250
