    "the photographs capitalize on the dualities of light and dark, stillness and movement"
late Middle English: from late Latin dualitas, from dualis (see dual).

Among the ideas that Kim Matthews and I have been working with is DUALITY.  Obviously, there can be a series of plays on words, taking us off into commentaries on human nature, spirituality and vice.  But we discovered, with the amazement that only non-math-nerds can muster, that if you place a dot in the center of each plane of a regular polyhedron, you will define another shape within.  Too Cool!
