Poetry of the Spheres was installed at A Ship in the Woods, Escondido, CA, in January of 2019 as part of their Grey Matter event. Guests were invited to be present with themselves and 4 sphere waterecolor paintings mounted in the forest, then express their poetry in nearby notebooks. The small lights created an intimate, magical space.
