The fourth alter is an orb of light and it’s mirrored twin just on the other side of the watery portal. Together they create an infinity symbol out of light. The creation of life in our universe is such a delicate balance of so many variables. We’re born on a planet (that just happens to have water on it) that is the perfect distance from a sun. Without either of these variables (amongst others) life here would never have evolved.

Like all things, the universe has created a balance for everything. A yin and a yang. A night and a day. Like all things, man also has this built in dichotomy. I photographed this 8’ orb on Center Hill Lake in Tennessee. I had my lights behind it so that it would become the source of light. The more my strobes fired, the more bugs and insects were drawn to it. Creating an anomaly of an ecosystem, from the interjection of light and water within space.

The impossibility of life, of our existence on this planet is miraculous. This planet that is the right distance from the sun, which also happens to have water on it, allowed us to evolve out of the primordial ooze into cognizant beings.
