 An intimate relationship with the living world, held explores a trust fall into the unknown, not knowing where to turn and falling into the life force of nature.

 Informed by the daily ritual of farming, held examines the deepening of relationships to nature to be an informative mentor, a confidant, relentless lover and seductive muse.

 Inspired by the capacity we hold to define our own deities, royalty, celebrities and saints.  I feel grateful to have found mine outside.

 This is a multi-sensory installation created by light, sound, sculpture, and video.
