Fault lines


The soil which nourishes us is made up of material which has withstood, as we have, clashes and crashes of opposing forces and it is only the time scale which makes our fault lines different.

We can see evidence of this interaction in the fault lines in rocks but we try to hide our own fault lines, or what makes us who we are, either physically by dressing to please others for example, or emotionally by pretending we are what we are not, by putting on a brave face, for example. Both these processes create their own pressures which will, in time, create more fault lines which we will again try to hide.

In the coloured images, there are two types of lines: the organic and the constructed. They each have their own beauty.
