As part of the artist residency we were asked to create a collaborative art piece amongst the three artists. The writer of the group wrote to us on the first day of the collaboration and asked the following question.
Dialogue 1: "That tree with its hideous strength will out live you and me, so what is it that you want to contribute? Gray water, dead lakes, silt in the stream that once flowed with memory? You can do better because I have heard you hum."
I have dwelled on this comment and see a direct correlation between the question posed and my work with environmental issues.
Collaborative piece, "Four Dialogues between a Writer and Artists", with
Professor Maria Tuttle and Professor Charla Puryear. (http://charlapuryear.com)
