More Info Works / Cave


A woman does not succeed in her work. Her trowel fails to break the hard ground. The reality, where one must exist, is left behind as the woman’s path leads to the cave. Inside the cave in the darkness her hands sink into the soft ground. The miners, able to work on the hard rock effortlessly, are frightening for the woman. She draws back and hides in the darkness. She has to face a vast, blinding light before being able to enter the new scenery outside.
