this installation is a symbol of a spiritually charged evolutionary ascent: a symbol for breaking through to the next level in any developmental process. such a breakthrough requires both stamina and a leap of faith – a faith in the idea that the next room (next phase, next conceptual tier) is worth the risk and effort to reach.

whatever the developmental process – spiritual, artistic, intellectual, physical, social, political – real growth means chopping a way out of one place (i.e. body and mind, current habits and beliefs) as much as chopping a way into another state of being.

is this the waiting room, this room where you are standing, with the axes overhead? or is the waiting room on the other side, where the landscape of your potential lies in wait for you to break through? which direction do you want to go, and what are you willing to do to get there? when will you make the first move?
