What matter provokes?
Prompting blackness of mood. Lines of stitching to encase and point out Black Lives Matter.
The petals, dried from flowers I collected are encased by black netting. Fabric for a
fashionable dress is also a cage.
Matter and concern have us gathering, listening, reflecting, being-with grass, sky, trees, air
with possibilities sinister and welcoming as bodies young and older commune, sing. Words and
experiences are given and received. Peace is not necessarily peaceful.
