Historical Context:
"What I've come to understand about the project in general is that it is about the landscape reinterpreted," he says, "and it's also about the way we take our visible environment as being inevitable. For practical reasons we focus on what's in front of us, but the truth is, all sorts of other things could have happened; where we're standing could have been a Chinese village or a Shinto shrine, it could have been under 1,000 feet of ice if we were born a million years earlier ... and I think when we look at things differently, it gives us an insight into our own world. ... But most of the time, it's hard to get that distance to see things in a new way." Kymaerica enables people to create that distance. And, he adds, "crossing that line is part of the fun."
