Anchorage / Vivian Cooper Smith

VCSmith_Anchorage_1 copy

Anchorage draws its inspiration from the medieval men and women who walled themselves up inside living tombs in order to reject the world and commune with God. Apart from limited interaction with the church and community that supported them they spent most of their time developing an internal life and exploring the spaces they found there.

In a world where meaning lies on the surface and definitions are inherited, sometimes its better to retreat into the darkness. Here anything is possible, nothing is defined and, as my mother would say, you stand alone.
