This print is from a body of work called The time of Dreaming the World Awake. It is about a landscape of possibility. The story enters on Bugarach, a ‘magic’ mountain in France. Bugarach was somehow connected to a Mayan prophecy, which indicated that the world would end on December 21st, 2012. The prophecy claimed that this date would mark the beginning of a new era for humanity, a new and sublime future. Bugarach was to be the first bastion of this modern Arcadia. Nothing happened that December. Despite this, I realised how attractive it was to believe in the possibility of an idyll, even if it only existed in my mind.
