“Places matter. Their rules, their scale, their design include or exclude civil society, pedestrianism, equality, diversity (economic and otherwise), understanding of where water comes from and garbage goes, consumption or conservation. They map our lives [...] the way we inhabit places also matters, and that comes from experience, imagination, belief, and desire as much as or more than from architecture and design. In other words, the mind and the terrain shape each other: every landscape is a landscape of desire to some degree, if not always for its inhabitants”
Solnit, R. 2007. Storming the Gates of Paradise: Landscapes for Politics, p.9.

House of the Spirit

The loops of life’s experiences are a powerful motif in the first full-length album from indie band Shy&Sheer. Eye-catching and subtle, the distinctive metallic coil is an abstract representation of the winding path of life, complete with all the breaks and interconnected layers of meaning people form along the way.
