"I again used a Christ pose, this time from The Resurrection by Anthony van Dyck. I had Courtney adapt this pose into a reclining position in her bed. The text is from a line in Courtney’s poem, The Fourth Talking Scroll, and this section reads: 'two of us may be nothing/ alike I am nothing like/ the messenger who carries/ me I’m composed of sound while she is a lamb she can do/ so much but she can never/ be the message as you can never be the messages/but receive and transmit them'.
