15 Aug STRUCTURE + CONSCIOUSNESS = INTEGRATIVE SPACE®
In the end, the pillar became a living wall. The plant colors, their shape, the base of the pillar were all based on the 5 Chinese Elements which, in itself, was an intentional action. However, to enhance that further, a traditional Chinese medicine gourd (with healing seeds inside) was hung INSIDE the pillar. Yes, never to be seen. Yet the intentional fervor around timing its installation, who would be there, and what it means gave that pillar what Christopher Alexander would call consciousness. The pillar ended up being remarkable both inside and out.A small thing? Hardly. A conscious and intentional action? Definitely.
