STILL POINT whirls around a point of centeredness as four screens of home and homelessness, travel and weather, architecture and sports signify the constant movement and haste of late twentieth century life. "At the still point of the turning world, that's where the dance is," wrote T.S. Eliot in Burnt Norton, the Four Quartets. Hammer seeks a point of quiet from which all else transiently moves.
