|Orgone Box, 2016|
"The title is borrowed from Wilhelm Reich’s theory of orgone, an etymological combination of orgasm and hormone, the vital creative, essential sexual force of the universe in which we all share, and the frustration of which leads to disease and misery. It matters not a whit if there is any scientific validity to this concept, even though Macri can be scientifically “true” when he needs to be. He possesses a great grasp of botanical and zoological facts that serve him well. In this image, though, Macri uses orgone poetically or metaphorically, just as many artists and writers have relied upon various Freudian or Jungian theories in their art for their poetic rather than scientific truths."
