Installation in the Concord Hapgood-Wright Town Forest, part of an exhibition alongside 8 other artists "Slow Eyes, Solace and Site" in honor of Thoreau's 200th Anniversary. On view through the summer until Sept. 30th 2017
"The light that puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star." Henry David Thoreau
This installation involves a slow meditative process that requires observing, slowing down to the rhythmic nature of our own bodies and our relationship to environment. Nature calls me to be still and navigate always as a beginner with the utmost curiosity. It is an immersive experience based upon my sense of place, history and the natural components/materials that are imbedded in the Concord Hapgood-Wright Town Forest. I often find a resolution by creating patterns and reinventing found objects in a means to resurrect older fallen limbs or disposed of natural materials to highlight the process of growth and decay and the cycle of nature.
