Quincunx Notes

Definition  a geometric pattern of five points with four of them creating a square or a rectangle and a fifth at the center.  dice, dominoes, a baseball diamond.

Astrology  a celestial geometry between planets that are 150 (±2 deg) apart.  yod, also called the finger of god, is an isosceles configuration creating two quincunxes. their incompatible realities necessitate that you move into a new dimension in order to recognize continuity.

my installation is an intersection between these immaterial forces and terrestrial, material conditions. a delicate truce between the imagined disagreements of my source materials.
