Working Surfaces

April 2008

The body turns because it goes one way, stops, sinks weight down, presses in to the ground with an emphasis of one foot or another, and propels up and therefore out. The sudden change of speed which would induce a fall or inertia at a slower speed, catches in through minute muscle contraction that holds in place momentarily, a caught speed which is somewhere between falling and bouncing back up.
This reattributed surface, workable at a specific moment in a sequence of procedures, is a spiral. A linear progression turned around into a spin in a fraction of a second in the displacement of weight around the hips, which is the articulation and coming into being of the spine.
That is a magical instant that turns a dead-end into something useable.
