While I breathe and the Moon drifts away from Earth
We need to change, says Cohen the questions we ask of stones. To stop seeing them as inert agglomerations of deep history and consider them as vibrant matter, full of agency of which the Earth of tomorrow will be made. Miguel Sbastida’s work moves in this direction when he reminds us that each of our breaths, with its flows of oxygen and carbon dioxide, modifies the atmosphere; each nail and each bone is part of the infinite dance of the elements; that in each stage of the biochemical processes that pass through us as terrestrials, whether we are alive or not, the destiny of the world is contained.
