Trine: Finding the Cosmic in Queens
When I see a slant of light refracted, I feel the gods breathing. I am quick to tilt my camera at an arc, bending before the lightning ghosts dissolve. Pockets of grey places flicker in and out of grace. I wait for the guillotine of light. It splits the object’s body from its soul. I try to catch it, severed, airy, bouncing and bowing. I am intoxicated by harsh lens flare, water, hair, the fringes of raw edges and parking lots. I hold still to harness the shine.
Trine: Term in astrology, of or pertaining to the trigon aspect of two planets distant from each other 120°, or the third part of the zodiac. The distance between planets corresponding to one side of a triangle.
