Dead Low, High Water

2-Channel Video, Sound, Printed Matter

We are not subtle enough to perceive that probably absolute flow of becoming... A tree is a new thing at every instant; we affirm the form because we do not seize the subtlety of an absolute moment.
(Niezsche)

A work addressing the nature of the archive existing in a permanent state of becoming. Various documentary gestures are applied to a location that is seldom treated as an archival subject: the Rhode Island coastline. In this seemingly barren place, devoid of material, there existed an almost infinite number of narratives that could be gleaned from the single location.
