Circular Journey #1

variablex140xvariable mm (w,h,d)

This 'Full Circle' book represents the circular journey of the year, the Earth's annual pilgrimage through the night sky and the twelve houses of the zodiac.

I have taken the night sky as an analogue of the mind, and the mysterious 'dark matter' (here represented by the blank pages interspersing the zodiacal star groups) as the unconscious.

Groping through the darkness one suddenly comes upon a group of stars which one gratefully (and erroneously) interprets as a lucid view of 'reality'.
