I began this work in 1977. It was and continues to be clearly defined as a search around the human being. We want the experience to become evident – everything is created through the presence of those people who participate. There are no spectators. There is no separation between the creative process and the creative outcome. This is Active Culture. It comes from all the participants and is shared by all of them. There is no result or product of Active Culture: There is the direct experience of it, which can never be repeated and is different each time.
