A child at a fire. An archaic scene, like a descendant of Kubrick's Star Child in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Then all the kindling is gone, the child plays outside in the snow, rolls down the hill and gets up at the bottom, a grown man. A twig or branch isn't enough anymore, not even a tree, but a whole forest, tree by tree. His work seems never-ending. An alternately allegoric and mystical miniature of the circle of life, of destruction and rebirth, and the power of nature.
