This show explores the relationship between life and death through cycles of growth and development.  The main feature is an illustrated scroll composed of seventeen pieces, “The Riddle of Eyes”.  The end of the scroll links back to the beginning, and the high level of detail and density of symbols encourage the audience to revisit it for multiple viewings over time.
