“We are all of us walking communities of bacteria.
The world shimmers, a pointillist landscape made of tiny living beings.”

Take up a Handful of Clay // 2018
Residency at The Creative Sanctuary
Arcata, CA

“Take up a handful of clay...” invited neighbors to a wild clay workshop. People were invited to create objects of local clay which I derived from a disturbed spot in the Arcata Community forest by bicycle. At the workshop people made gifts or offerings to be returned to the woods, stories or talismans or symbols made of clay which after drying out for a few days were returned to the spot where the clay was originally.
