A new year

News: The aquasculpture is now submerged after the rain. A few more inches and the lake will overflow into the pond, and the whole system will be recharged. The horses look a bit wet and sad. Berzerker is confused. He wants to come in, but then wants to go out. Truth is that he knows he wants something, but understands that something in simple spatial terms. Really he wants to be stroked, but does not know it. Once successfully stroked, he abandons the inside/outside game. This is my replay of Freud’s fort/da game. Religious belief, perhaps, is a similar translation of a desire we cannot articulate/acknowledge into one we can understand. 2009 will be the year of the great leap forward at YB. I have hopes that the funding for the residencies will be forthcoming, and that the collaboration with the Yorkshire Sculpture Park will move forward.
