Meditations on Water is composed of works by artists, inspired by the waters surrounding Seattle, as they partnered with City Meditation Crew to slow down and notice their environs one moment at a time. City Meditation Crew is a fictitious city department and performance art group who works throughout the United States. Meditations on Water includes an archive of photographs, sound works, and objects. We see and hear: City Meditation Crew paddling meditatively along the Duwamish River; Janet Norman Knox’s poetry about the disappearing viaduct; Susie Kozawa playing Pier 56 as an instrument; and a narrative by Linda Shaw embodying an attentive ferry passage on Puget Sound. Meditations on Water features handmade “river rocks” by Vaughn Bell and the passersby she engaged along rivers in
Washington. Bell will host a series of rock-making events at Jack Straw through the installation's run.
Opening with "Rock-Making" Event : April 14, 7-9 pm
Artist Panel: April 28, 7 pm
