SCAFFOLDS + POUCHES
The scaffold is a pause, an inflection of passage.
Scaffolding is analogy. It explains what a wall is without being a wall.
Scaffolding is a substitute for a site.
In darkness the scaffolding is foliage.
It is a temporary lacework, ceremonial furnishing that supports desires of our bodies.
Scaffolding is a falsework, both stable and “almost a catastrophe”.
