The Crossing by Bill Viola consists of a large screen which displays a motion picture on both sides (front and back) simultaniously. It is hung in the middle of a room so viewers can walk around it if they wished. On one side, the video shows a man walking towards the audience in slow motion. He comes to a halt, and moments later a fire starts at his feet. The fire climbs up his body until the man is entirely covered in flames. When the fire slows again, the man is gone, guzzled by the fire.                                                                                                On the other side of the screen, the same man walks towards the audience in slow motion. Gradually, more and more water falls down on him until finally he is not visible anymore, completely hidden behind the water. Again, when the water stops falling, the man has disappeared. All this was accompanied by matching sounds. Video documentation of The Crossing and making of the work can be found on the SF MOMA website:  Viola's personal history unveils why his art (almost) always has something to do with water.

When he was six years old, he fell out of a boat when he was on holiday with his parents. He nearly drowned. But unlike most people, Viola described the experience as “… the most beautiful world I’ve ever seen in my life” and “without fear, ” and “peaceful” [6]. This near-drowning experience  resulted in his fascination with water. Often I've used water as a metaphor, the surface both reflecting the outer world and acting as a barrier to the other world. [7] The first sex scene I ever read was between dragons. Too young and naïve to understand exactly what was happening but too smart not to get the gist of it anyway, I sank breathless-body-and-broke-open-soul into bronze Mnementh’s aerial capture of the gold queen Ramoth, and—simultaneously, of course—into Lessa’s acceptance of F’lar. Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonflight introduced me to adulthood. I read the planetary battle against Thread and the power politics of Pern with the fascinated eagerness of a teen who understood little of Vietnam or Watergate but thirsted for justice in the world. I devoured the intricacies of intrigue in a society under an alien threat in which people nevertheless fought each other for power. I reveled in the noble heroics and in tragedy that turned triumphant. The next sex scene I read was between moles. Yes, of course: moles. In Walter Horwood’s Duncton Wood novels religion and politics and violence were bound into emotion, instinct, and primal need so vibrant it left me both horrified and aching for more. At about the same time I discovered the magic of Camber of Culdi. Dark, rich, mysterious, sacred, powerful and deeply noble, Katherine Kurtz’s Deryni filled a young heart hungry for the magic of the transcendent with passion. Then I read Tolkien. Correction: I consumed Tolkien. And when my history buff sister told me about the parallels between the Lord of the Rings and World War history… Mind. Blown.

More than even my Catholic upbringing, Kurtz and Tolkien propelled me—years later—toward a PhD in Medieval Religious History. What did these series have in common?
