The Last Supper
An interactive installation inviting viewers to participate in a sitting meditation, with the intention of reflecting on one’s relationship to water. What are the personal, political, historical, or sacred relationships held with water? The embodied act of witnessing and participating in a contemplative practice created a public and private dialogue. Despite sitting in busy spaces such as: a Sunday afternoon at the National Arboretum, the center of an art exhibition on opening night, or the Reflection Pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial, participants were able to focus their minds and to engage in far ranging reflections on their relationship to water and water issues around the world.
At the Water Table
An interactive installation allowing viewers to witness and participate in a sitting meditation with the intention of reflecting on water. At each seat, visitors will find paper to write on and place into the bowls the name of a water source providing them with nourishment, solace, joy, renewal or memories — or the name of a place experiencing a water crisis. This is a way to enter the meditation with a personal connection or intention. The act of being still and focusing attention on this one element hopes to provoke deep listening and dialogue on greater awareness and care for the water that sustains us all.
