Elemental Catcher is a site-specific installation in an old home in Stöðvarfjörður, Iceland. The catchers became a player in the three kingdom narrative described by Francis Ponge’s poem, The Earth. In this project, I explore impermanence through geologic and human time sequences and geology as living poetry. As participants in (what Thoreau called) 'the great central life' of the earth, rocks have a life that unfolds in time sequences that are quite different from ours—and yet also subject to the impermanence that conditions all things.”
