Villarreal writes of Crossing the Rubicon: "Focusing on the writing of the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus, the work threads the idea of Julius Caesar's famous crossing of the Rubicon River, whereupon he stated, 'the die is cast.' This idea of a turning point and wading into the waters takes ancient texts and historical events which are woven into modern life; the shape of our present actions and future consequences, specifically through the lens of shifting generations; cycles of birth and death; and the nature of being the same yet different at every instance." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=328250 ShapeShifter Lab ShapeShifter Lab
