Why is it silk?

Silk is organic, silk is about mortality, silk is ethereal. Silk is like a skin. Cathedral is an examination of the sublime through the lens of monumental structures made by men. It is a response to grand attempts at permanence, at capturing the divine, of evoking awe. Extracting the essence or spirit, shrinking it down to human size, the size of a shroud, it is female, tied to the profound realities of life and death.
