    A Look Back at Whitney Houston

    This mosaic uses scenes from 16 of Whitney Houston's greatest videos to recreate her image, blended from two of the many faces she presented during her phenomenal entertainment career.

    "You will be missed in every corner of the world, Whitney."

    -------------------------------

    In this mosaic, I've tried to capture the range of Whitney's musical career: joyous, playful, full of love, empowering, maybe at times embittered, but even then full of determination and hope.

    To convey the variety of powerful messages of love and spirit she brought to her music, I tried to create an (almost) haphazard combination of the wealth of images from her huge career ... to form a striking, if somewhat dark, image of her looking wistfully over her shoulder,

    A talent so great; a self destruction so complete.

    -------------------------------

    I just read these words posted by my favorite singer/songwriter, Jane Siberry. It is hard to imagine anything more beautiful:
    -
    rest in blessed peace, whitney and may you be finally free of the negativity we project so easily on others. ie "when will people learn [mixing drugs and alcohol] can be fatal?" = perhaps this IS known. perhaps the desire to live is less than the desire to be without pain. perhaps there is an agreement with darkness on some level. we don't know and we know even less what is right for others. at the end, i think it is just between us and the Greater. very quiet, very intimate, beyond words. i'm sorry to see any negativity as her spirit moves ahead of us. did she murder? did she embezzle thousands from others? did she create laws that created more suffering and less dignity? did she sing in a way that reminded us of our best selves and the possibility of joy? feel our love, respect and gratitude for your time with us, dear child.
