These photographs of "The Vegetative Nervous System" and falling garden installations
created by young Swiss couple
Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger seems to contain that
beautiful chaos I feel life is, and should be, made up of.




Quoted from their site:
"Unimpressed by will or order the vegetative nervous system (the autonomic nervous system) works autonomously in the body and takes decisions independently. Luckily - if human beings had to initiate the control of all the organs intellectually they would never have had the time to invent the refrigerator. Autonomous actions are the fertilizer of the inner garden."

These are very cool, a more lyrical version of the "thicket" photographs by Friedlander and others that force you to focus on the whole because the parts are too complex to look at individually.
