Spread #11 – Wandering Mayan August 2, 2008Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
AA‘The Story of the Wandering Mayan and of Others In Between’ is a fictive poster for a fictive documentary about what I believe is not a fictive reality. That reality that we reside in many places and many places reside within us. Someone once said to me that just because we were born in one certain place does not mean we belong there. I remember hearing it felt liberating to me. At times I feel a strong sense of belonging somewhere…At times, nowhere. And that’s fine with me. What about you?
Taken from the art work above:
“The man is from many places–
The Maya Civilization, The holy land—
Fields of Maize, Milk and Honey—
Wet mountains of the Cuchumatanes, Dry desert of the Negev—
Green valley, Orange plain—
He is a nomad, A settler—
We come from many places.”
