Gate and my past project, Lethe, deal with similar themes. Both explore death, passage and the energy of earth and place. They are site specific, created in response to different locations and terrain. In Lethe, a man-made form is woven through a natural landscape; it is the more energetic of the two works, evoking the motion of a river cutting through rock before swirling back into the earth. Gate, located in the portico of the Receiving Tomb, brings organic materials to one of the cemeterys most elegant architectural structures. It is a more static, circular piece, reacting to the strong geometric elements that surround it.
