“River of Spirit of Life (ice piece),” video-performance/installation

 Opening reception: Friday, May 1, from 6-9 pm

The video-performance, River of Spirit of Life (ice piece) was created in the rural Missouri winter at the site of a small frozen waterfall. Alluding to an experience of becoming, the edge of attainment and passing, the figure is a metaphor for this eternal cycle in human life, nature and the cosmos.  The moving image is projected onto handmade felt within a sculptural environment of small trees harvested near the woodland site of the original performance for the camera.
