Though we have no background in architecture, here at En Gedi LLC we pride ourselves on our keen eye for brilliant bricklaying. We believe that all buildings are microcosms; every edifice a tiny galaxy built in the image of its surrounding societies. So we can’t help but gawk at the sagacity of erecting a juvenile detention center on the two blocks in-between a housing project’s playground and a major public transportation system. We marvel at the wisdom behind the remodeling of childcare centers to make way for parole and probations offices, and we will never comprehend the dungeonous terrors that harbor inner city public school systems. This world is truly full of wonders.
Wonder is a viciously powerful thing. It can ignite admiration, inspiration, jealousy, and fear. It makes slaves of masters and masters of slaves, and fills without discretion pockets and graves. But, most significantly, in the instant that wonder’s tendrils take hold of our senses, we are immersed in a hybrid state of shock and acceptance: a crossroads, an intersection, where for a millisecond, the mind is galvanized. A crux.
En Gedi LLC members embrace this hybrid state of being. We crave it, we pursue it, we abuse it, and we embody it. This crux, this essence of wonder that catalyzes and motivates, drives us to act, inciting us to rebel against a system, a society, and a world that creates and enforces canon based on principles that persecute some for the benefit of others.
Our rebellion manifests itself through our art and activity. We are not conspiracy theorists, though we are sometimes conspirators. We are plebeians. We are philanthropists. We are criminals. We are scholars. We are En Gedi LLC.
