“Two years ago I ended up in a field of grass hip high. This is where I began to make the body work that has come to be called The True Living Project.
E.E. Cummings said a poet a “someone who is abnormally fond of that precision which creates movement”.
Which is to say the highest form of concentration possible: fascination; to report on the electrifying experience of being.
On a daily basis we teeter on the edge of humanity losing history through the fading cultural landscape of our country and our interconnectedness as human beings. Though unconscious development and historical neglect. As we have barreled deeper and deeper into a technological / result driven 21st century, now more than ever I do believe we need to be brought home to the presence of our living. To allow the restful validation of your own tender true humanity, may this work be a living ode to our living.
I am striving to create both a visual and emotional unfolding through the textural interchange of photography, sound, collage, film and found objects.
As you observe, as you listen, may you rest into that place where this moment, and your memory, exist.” -Sabrina Ward Harrison
My 2009 valentines were a bit of a departure in a number of ways. They were more “conceptual” than previous years. Where previously I sent a nice or pretty something that was either straight forward or easy enough to figure out, this one is a bit more mysterious. This year I wrote 4 fragments of letters; each has no beginning and no end; and each is carefully crafted to hopefully have some resonance with most people. Each recipient got one fragment. – Marian Bantjes
