sleep with moths, 2008 Peter Madden
To me, this work is fragile yet resounding, awakening something untouched but intrinsic. Despite the skeleton, i think it's more concerned with birth and regeneration; it echoes the complex system of dependence that is imbedded within nature, where everything is interconnected. I don't think it's an upsetting image, more so one that is accepting of the inevitability of death, transforming it into a beautiful stage of arrival instead of departure where, from death, life emerges and prospers according to the natural cycle. On another level, it evokes the delicate but integral relationship between nature and humans.
