I actually had the immense pleasure and honor of seeing this work produced -- by Turner himself. He and several others performed this work, with an installation done by the artist Todd Camplin. One can see the full range of Turner's poetic skills in this piece. He does not avoid controversy, yet demonstrates a poetic compassion for antagonist and protagonist alike. Still, he does not hold back -- this is not an amoral work. It is ethical without being preachy; it is funny and sad and tragic and, in the end, hopeful. If the city can have a soul -- and, if we take Nietzsche's sense of a soul, it can and does -- then Turner shows us the soul of Dallas. It's not always good, but in the end, it's certainly not bad, either. This is a beautiful work I strongly recommend.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
