Sharizeh Houshiary and Pip Horne.
East Window, St. Martin-in-the-Fields church, London. 2008

Like a Vasarely bubble that has popped.

Sharizeh Houshiary's and Pip Horne's East Window (facing the dawn, welcoming the return of the light) reads like a grid interrupted. Like order disrupted (chaos leaking in). Like a weaving with a hole at the centre; a vulnerability. Like a rupture in the fabric of the known universe. 

At the centre of the cross, an opening. A way in and a way out. A beginning and an ending. A birth and a rebirth.

A rent in the veil.
