Commissioned for Utah Valley University's Repertory Ballet Ensemble as a part of their "Dance out of Glass" production. The concert was based on the university library's "Roots of Knowledge" stained glass windows, a 10-by-200 foot piece of art made up of 80 windowpanes and more than 60,000 individual pieces showing the history of human intelligence (see link below). "For the time being" was based on the final panel and inspired by the connectivity and tensions of humankind.
