The Hatching of Endless Wonders
printed on Giclée Epson Semi-Gloss
The piñata is a decorated vessel, usually in the shape of a balloon and made out of papier-mâché, filled with sweets, small toys and other gifts. This container is hung and beaten with a stick by blind-folded participants until it breaks, spilling out the unexpected wonders within.
A balloon is effectively a bubble, and bubbles of any kind are by their nature mysterious and wonderful things. A molecule thick skin containing an infinity of possibilities within its secret space.
Alas, when the bubble ruptures, all those wonderful possible worlds within spill out, just as in a piñata, and are gone, even in an instant.
Can we ever know what the bubble contained?
Perhaps, but only in the vague, amorphous shadows of our private dreamscapes.
