St. Lawrence river water + seaweed. Holly McClellan’s water & seaweed studies.
This post is more about checking to see if I have placed this properly in WP.
Image is the St. Lawrence River. Or “La Fleuve” at the Saint – Irénée beach in Québec.
This river is the gateway to learning about Quebec’s history, which leads to Canada. Nobody would have survived without the help of First Nations tribes to navigate the river and survival techniques to endure the harsh climate on the north or south shores.
If the image has a creepy quality to it, maybe it should. Will it be necessary to rely on a future culture of pollution survivors to access drinking water?
If you didn’t know …
Concrete; River Water.
Yes I may or may not blog about works in progress such as my interest in black as a symbol of water in Feng Shui.
I read about it, but a performance about the colour black by Teresa Asencao inspired me to reconsider colour symbolism in Feng Shui. Specifically the colour black. For now I am interested in capturing and studying the qualities of black water and all it’s visual possibilities.
This may or may not evolve and correlate to my interest in consumerism and household junk. Instead these “Black Water Studies” might serve to further connect my art and interest in ‘finance’. So far it seems possible the new “Black Water” studies might connect with older works like No Monetary Value (a.k.a. the dishes spelling!) and the Financial Peace Cranes (my 1000 origami peace cranes rooted with the wish for Financial Literacy for the masses …). Or they might not.
For now when reading the above image – consider black as a symbol for water. Or concrete and water as commodities.
There. 1 blog post – DONE!!!
