A rope ties the two boulders together, defining the pre-existing natural element to be spiritual, a human superimposition on nature itself to idolize for worship.
Here, two points in space connect to defining meaning.
For the mobile pavilion, two stones connect to define space.
The 1//5//50//200//2000 pavilion offers a view to a past presence that simultaneously looks forward to its next destination. By employing material (bamboo, thatch, hemp, and stone) that naturally degrade over time, the pavilion signals materially the moment of necessary transition. A water drop through a worn thatch roof indicates the moment of departure. The stone foundation is left in place and the pavilion deteriorates, eventually leaving only the trace of its footing.
