A Rebours

Bury the exposed beams. Cover them in what may be, plaster or paint. The natural is not essentially beatiful and it is not to be exalted, but pitied. Clad in fabric or beaten metal. Show the artifice of the thing by hiding it, piling in unnecessary but beautiful drag. The objects deserve our sense of modesty and transformation too. Illuminate them softly, or hide them so that no one may notice. Or if anything, paint every fifth or sixth in a way that brings them all in high, dusting and splintered, relief. This may be an impossible task.
