Of Waking In Ice

Jack Ryan has invited several folks to respond to Werner Herzog's Of Walking in Ice that will start at Soil in Seattle December 2, then move to the White Cube in the White Stag building in Portland in March. The show includes Steven Thompson, Dominic DeJoseph, Melody Owen, Donald Morgan, Bill Daniel, David Berman of the Silver Jews, and others. My contribution is below and more details are here and here and here- Jack's images from the opening and exhibition are here.

The cover of the first edition of Herzog's book is above and below is my work in the show. A branch of a cherry tree carved by hand and with a small chainsaw that is mounted to a subwoofer on the bottom and has a small speaker embedded in the top, out of sight. I made a sort of soundtrack for the book but filtered the sounds so each speaker seems quite distant from the other.
