Cosmos & Creation
BW: You keep connecting your boyish imaginations to the cosmos, why?
HL: Well, when we make something that is somewhat new, haven’t we added something, however minute, to the ever expanding cosmos?
BW: Well, perhaps. But have you made anything that is somewhat new?
[Each summer as I walk Nantasket Beach certain stones catch my eye and whisper things such as ‘I’m beautify, collect me,’ ‘I’m ugly, collect me,’ ‘I show the history of this planet, collect me.’ I collect stones only if they agree to transform themselves into horses – that’s what stones did when I was a kid in Idaho. The pretty rocks I collected on Idaho’s sandy hills became horses in the play ranch I constructed under my grandmother’s apple tree. Later, much later, memories of those stones transformed themselves into horses in the pages of my artist-books and folios. Now those pages merge with Nantasket stones and shadows in Polyvore sets.]
