FROM A LETTER GILES WROTE TO HIS FATHER BEFORE GOING TO YELLOW SPRINGS
"I have been chosen to be artist in residence at Yellow Springs Institute, which is near Philadelphia, to create a performance work called 'Fixing the Wounds'. I will be performing outside in an earthwork arena, similar in style to Stonehenge, which in itself placed on a Native American Indian ley line that runs through the countryside, something similar to the ley lines that criss cross the English countryside. Its only for 2 weeks but it will be the first time to create works outside the Twin Cities, and may well give me will give me opportunities to create works around the States. The work in essence is about the fact that quick fixes to world problems, as promoted by corporations and governments, don't work, without an understanding of all the nuances that exist around and in us."
