Advent Reflection 4 - Bath by David Lopez

December 23, 2014

 

 

 

 

This final week leading to Christmas I thought that this video was so appropriate. It is a beautiful video work that really brings to life the reflections of what it is to have God become human - we can know what is to come at Easter, but for now we are called to be amazed at the delightful humanness of this baby, to reflect on the ritual of washing and the relationship of body and soul. 

 

You can find a reflection that the artist himself wrote, Bathed in Light, here:

“Bath is a video installation of a baby being washed in the bathroom. It is three minutes long and is played repeatedly."

 

His final question is ‘Where should we direct our gaze?’ something we may all want to ponder a bit at this time of year.

I feel deflated

un-known, un-knowing

my enthusiasm constantly dripping away

 

I feel tire...
