At 5:40Am. on March 23rd, 2020 I incorporated a text fragment from one of Euripides’ lost tragedies with a site responsive approach to Environmental Art and Public Art (The statue: To Honor Surfing Statue) on Santa Cruz’s Westside. Informally, the piece is called The Man Who Knows. This work is part of a larger project called IOTA that brings to life the remaining textual fragments of the lost plays of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides.
The man who knows how to heal well must look to the lifestyles of a city’s inhabitants and to their land when he examines their illnesses.
