when I was in the USA for just a few months
the thought of seasons bothered me.
It didn't feel right that at any given time,
I couldn't wear a swimsuit and run to the beach.
Yes, that was at first.
And now seven years have past
changing everything as usual.
I love to make different plans for each season.
I look forward to Thanksgiving.
I like how the sound of those who walk
on the leaves laying on the sidewalk resonates by my window.
I have become a fan of butternut squash,
gravy, pumpkin flan and I prefer anemones versus peonies.
Dont get me wrong.
The beach will always be my first choice.
But there is something transitional to the seasons
which allows you a new life.
A chance of creating experiences and craving hot toddies.
Something I didn't have before and
now it can also be mine.
The jubilation of the fall.

While many humans repress their innate animal needs under the guise of social advancement, the figures in Elina Tuhkanen’s exhibition Pilose Crux: Performative Sculptures from Finland actively resurrect their primitive selves through intimate, almost sacred, acts of camouflage. Communing, prayer-like, behind heavy screens of fur, their hidden gesturing suggests a longing for symbiosis in a culture defined by its increasing disconnect from the natural world.
