life energy

I am a fan of the latest two-part installation from Maurizio. I don’t speak Italian and that is a good thing for it allows me to give an independent interpretation. I see the sword as our passion/conscience/libido/Qi, life energy that is inherent to each of us and is wielded by us, cutting through the world and interacting with those around us. This energy is in our safe-keeping and continues to be with us through all stages of life.

We each have the power to control and direct it, taking into consideration the other energies and individuals around us. We have the power to express that energy forcefully, letting it be all it can be whilst being fully conscious of our actions and their ramifications….
