As the hours progress, and the landscape evolves, and Kurt and Mark enact a pilgrimage of consciousness replete with mystical insights, wonderment, and intimations of subtle spiritual battle. Which path is the truly enlightened? What perception is the truly devout? How does one live in a fallen world? Coupled with recent work by Justine Kurland--sumptuous color photographs of burned forests, bearded men, and naked visionaries in wild tableaux--Old Joys story of sacrificial transcendence spirals toward an inevitable, violent consummation.
