About this work:
Ginkgo bilboa, or the maiden hair tree, is a living fossil. It is the only existing species in its division of Ginkgophyta, and some specimens have been recorded to live over a thousand years. They are revered for their tenacity and strength--six gingko trees somehow even managed to survive the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
German poet Goethe composed a poem about the ginkgo, yearning for a lady love. In it, he speculates about the split nature of the leaves and wonders if the leaves are to be viewed as one being divided in two or as two beings united as one.
My piece combines symbols of longevity, cranes and ginkgo trees, with the fleeting feeling of a memory.
