|The River is Crying, 2011
Installation with Live Sound, Found Object, Glass Cylinders, and Water
10'L x 5'H x 4'W
*Created in Collaboration with BlueSky Project 2011
A beaten up old Texaco sign, pulled from a river levee, was the centerpiece of this sound installation. The sign is representative of several conceptual strands that center on pollution and the inclination to use our waterways as dumpsite. Here, the river is personified in the tears that fall and strike the sign in pronounced fashion before running down into the water underneath. In this work, the group was challenged to imagine what the rivers would say if they could talk.
