THE END
 


NOTES


White left and black right opening plays off Western cultures scanning images from left to right, so it represents Life being upstream.  It could be done in reverse as justly, to stand for passing from death to life.  I chose the former.

Hand writing numbered, wanting, discarded ties to Belshazzar and the hand writing on the wall.

The narrowing band of grey in the center of the opening stands for the shrinking middle ground, neither hot or cold.

"Salvation's song" is image of black and white tower's separated by a great plain.
