Is there an Icelandic word to express Clarity?
Maybe Kaosmosis...

In The Lives of a Cell, looking at the earth from above (...) it has the organized, self-contained look of a live creature, full of information, marvelously skilled in handling the sun.

Take a look through the microscope.
See within the cell.
We are artists
living our lives,
devoted to our personal beliefs.

Words, energy, sensation, space, echo, ritual, music...
are crystals
by commitment to materialize this devotion.

The littlest bricks of material realm
propose the shape of the matter.
The way the world happens to look.
It is clear,
crystal clear
and fantastically chaotic.

Zooming in on the illusion of these separate identities.
We find
no clutter without clarity,
no clarity without clutter.

Embrace the chaos in the dirty earth.

chaos does not want to be held,
obstinate like a teenager
seeping through our arms,
permeating out of this cosmos into the next.

Only a limited perspective can show things out of place.
Show us the dirt...
Human being is part of pollution.

Could it be,
the universe is self-correcting,
the earth cleansing itself
making up for its own mistakes.

Life is oscillation
being in place and being out of place
take or mistake
clarity and chaos.

Life flowing
in and out
the cell,
the planet,
the cosmos.

Kaosmosis – a group show at Kling and Bang August 14 – September 12.  With a performance opening August 14 at 5pm. 
 Life springs eternal from the source.
Chaos activates serendipitous cohesion.  Form coagulates and dissolves fine-tuning and balancing towards sustainability.  A fluid stream spills into consciousness and life rejoins, molds and regenerates.  To commune, transfer, merge, synthesize and evaporate; the infinite urge of procreation moans a spiraling eroticism inextinguishable and divine.
