“This is about creating tension. You have to kind of feel your way across and make sure all the strings are even, they’re the same, everyone’s carrying the same weight. When I’m thinking about the spritual significance of this I’m thinking about justice and equity, and everyone carrying the same weight, each having gift in society, each having the tension on them, the activity ready that they can go do it. And the relationaship between justice and beauty.”
