AIMEE BARRINGTON
[the sacred and the profane]
“Ah, whom can we ever turn to
in our need? Not angels, not humans,
and already the knowing animals are aware
that we are not really at home in
our interpreted world. Perhaps there remains for us
some tree on a hillside, which every day we can take
into our vision; there remains for us yesterday's street
and the loyalty of a habit so much at ease
when it stayed with us that it moved in and never left.”

-- Rainer Maria Rilke, excerpted from Duino Elegies, The First Elegy

This project entertained the simulacra of angels in everyday environments, as a departure from common depictions of angels seen in sentimental cards and untouched stained glass windows.
