Bassilica Di San Marco, Venice

Days spent walking in Venice, thinking about the world's surface and the sky. Surrounded by images and objects that consider the human journey from the places we walk upon - here a raft of land resting on the waters - to all that rises upward from it.

 

Often the sky and water merge into a dome of light. Within this glory daily life unfolds. In this place the Bible has provided the narrative pathway. In the dome of St Mark's the mosaic takes us from the garden and seeks to lead us to heaven. I enjoy being surrounded by this story but feel so free to have stepped out of it. The world now opens out in this uncertain Middle Place.
