"There is such power in narrative images for me. There is a feeling that we're creating an entire imaginary world, building designs around interactive themes that are familiar to all of us. The shapes are obvious and immediate and, at the same time, impressionistic and lyrical - the way a small child might imagine the scenes in a story he's being told. The image of the tree of life is one of my favorites. It is an idea which is so widely expressed in all cultures and by all religions that it becomes a universal symbol of hope." ~M.
