Energy Is Eternal Delight is a simple text piece, featuring the words of William Blake. While there are many interpretations of Blake's work, Angel Rose interprets the quote as meaning that we are all united and connected through nature. She says, "When I walk along the seafront, I often think about the fact that human beings, as well as everything that exists in the natural world, are created and perpetuated by pure energy. Energy fuels our globalised world, while energy from the sun gives us light during the day. It helps plants grow. Energy stored in plants is eaten by animals, giving them energy. Everything we do is connected to energy in one form or another. Energy is the divine mystery that unites us all. In times of deep uncertainty and disharmony, I wanted to create a work which reflects upon the joy of our interconnected existence."
