When the Earth

Young’s exploration of the moment probes the boundaries between the everyday and the esoteric. With clarity and simplicity, she maps out a reality that is both spiritual and pragmatic. From “Field and Sky” to the “Observatory,” When the Earth investigates the invisible world, conjured by urban and natural landscapes as well as the terrain of our essential relationships.
