Michael Cross

Citat: The Bridge is a series of steps which rise up out of the water in front of you as you walk from one to the next, and then disappear back underneath behind you as you go, leaving you stranded with only one step visible in front of you, and one behind. The bridge ends in the middle of the water, where you find yourself totally isolated and cut off from the shore. You return the way you came. The mixed feelings of peace, isolation, relaxation and fear that the piece elicits are powerful.

I'm in love with the Lunuganga project :). Thank you for sharing. Istuti! - that is "thank you" in Sinhalese (Sri Lanka) :D.

Hello, many thanks for posting about my work! If anyone out there is interesed in seeing the pieces for real, I have an exhibition in the Nelson Atkins Museum in Kansas City (US) beginning late in October which will include Lunuganga along with some new pieces. It is also very likely that there will be a new exhibition of Bridge opening at the end of May in Belgium - although this is not 100% confirmed yet so I can't post the venue.

Thanks again,

Good luck Michael. Maybe someday you will bring the project Bridge in Romania too.
