Delightful! The comparison between the Last Supper to Deutschlands Geisteshelden is so interesting. Their gigantic life-size scale and urgent perspective make our world drop away as they draw us into theirs and leave us astonished. But while Leonardo places us at the scene of a momentous historical event, Keifer strands us with a feeling of ambiguity and dwelling in an unsettling metaphorical universe of created outside of time. These fires dimly light up and memorialize past luminaries, while at the same time endangering the viscerally timber-constructed space that we are drawn into with conflagration. Thank you Brooks for a wonderful essay and Lea for putting the icing on the cake!
