Visiting My Cousins Uzura & Imori Gakure (cycle 2, parts 1 - 4)
Every year I take a trip to a particular abandoned limestone quarry on Kelley's Island, a tiny island in Lake Erie. I go visit a particular rock and I note the changes to the rock over the past year and I try to learn things about being a rock by spending time mimicking the rock. This is a meditative practice that allows me to engage stillness in ways that I do not find possible in my day-to-day life and it grounds my creative practice to spend time learning how to be a rock. I've documented this process the past two years and here is the footage from this year's visit.
