The web of life connects all things, animate and inanimate. All are related by the very fact that they exist in this universe, as part of creation. I believe that all things are of equal value, as each serves a role or purpose of some kind. In American Indian and many other traditions, the use of herbs and scents is common. Many are used for purification, attaining clarity and connection with Spirit, as well as, stimulating or calming various emotional states. In this series I burn sage, copal, cedar, tobacco, incense and some blends. I then photograph the resulting smoke. I find that the spirit of the herb is revealed through the many shapes and forms that appear. The smoke, for me, represents the web of life; connecting and nebulous at the same time. Each image is open to interpretation. See what appears for you.
