a measure of you

The act of digging is laden with duality- you are either looking to bury and conceal or uncover and create.  This piece was created in response to the 2016 performance, surrogate: a measure of your absence; 223 lbs of hand dug Maine soil filled into a cotton sack (dimensions of sack: 78 x 25 x 7").  It features video footage from the digging portion of my 2016 performance and the mound of 223 lbs of soil that was displaced shown in conjunction with one another, 2017.
