Something happens, we are never able to fully grasp it and yet we?re completely affected. We try to understand the kinds of molecular change we can feel but cannot control. Our psychic space is clouded, has shifted and remains the same.
?Letting Go? is difficult because we have an innate tendency to grasp onto things. Because we are aware that everything flows and what we have now will at some point in the future be taken from us, we try to turn the things we?re attached to into stone. We hold too tightly to our loved ones and relationships, we do anything we can to retain our youthfulness as we age, we grasp onto our beliefs as if they foretold the secrets of the universe, and thus we remain rigid and closed minded.
In 1955, A demolition worker finds something in a box in the cornerstone of a building and sees something happen. Hoping for fame and fortune, he takes something to see a talent agent. However, something won't happen in front of the agent. He then sees a theater for rent, takes out his life savings, and has something happen. Something keeps happening until the curtain opens, to which the audience boos when something doesn?t happen in front of them. Something continues to happen when nobody except its owner is around. As for the man, he is soon penniless and living on a park bench. Something keeps happening for the man, and something attracts the attention of a policeman. When the cop demands to know what is causing all the noise, the man points to something happening. When something happens for the policeman, the cop arrests the man for disturbing the peace, whereupon he is remanded to a psychiatric hospital for attempting to blame it on something. Sometime later, the man is released. Broken by his attempts at fame and fortune, the man regains his composure by putting something back in the box. The man passes by the construction site of the "Tregoweth Brown 40-Story Building," and entombs something by placing the box inside the new cornerstone which is soon sealed.
In 2019, two artworks will be on public display in the waiting room at Mosquera Orthodontics.
In 2056, the building is taken apart by a futuristic demolition worker who finds something in a box and something happens. The 21st century construction worker starts thinking to himself about big bucks, and sneaks off with something.
