Artist statement

moving water
tracing time

the black holes in our education
unknown to me when I grew up here

we are told 
get over our history
it's water under the bridge
move on
leave the past behind

stones

dropping into water slowly

a punctuation

a breathing space

the river is scarified

it runs with the blood of memory

we are here

listening
