It is an event on the web. It is the first publication of lostNfound. It is one map to the models of expansion of consciousness. Specifically, it is a panorama of the model of EIE. The QTVR is at the bottom of the page, so you can read while it downloads (236K). There is also a non-QTVR detailed look at the scene.
As we sit on the meditation cushion within, see what we see from each opening. We are the wild plant volunteers, honored today for the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere.
In 55 minutes, it will be the equinox. We quiver in anticipation of the balance point between equal night and day. Through our roots, we will sense vibrations of the peace bell tolling from the UN building in NYC for Earth Day.
I call our friends here a "still life" as in "there is still life". I live in the city and was unable to travel today but I found an encouraging sign for Earth Day. It's been 15 years since I moved from the country. The plants I brought have all died. But the native California plants volunteered here. I don't water the containers. All summer they are dry and dead, no plant life. Yet when winter rains come, plants spring up.
The redwood sorrel, Oxalis, that usually grows in redwood forests, is suviving on my deck in Silicon Valley. The Western Garden book says that all types of sorrel can be grown in containers except this kind. My volunteers are the exception.
I don't know the origin of the fat succulents or the filigree weed with tiny orchids either.
This pano is an entry to lostNfound, the space, the sculptures, the ideas they spring from and explore. The theme is expansion of consciousness. The forms are either ritual objects to aid expansion or models of visions of expanding consciousness. Hotspots in the pano link to ever greater detail and deeper levels of information. In April, 1998, there's a start.
