Hauling Toward Home

An audio installation

I have come to a place in my life 
where I no longer know what "home" means.
Is it the place where I live?
Or is it the people I love?

Hauling Toward Home explores rowing across dark water to reach a familiar harbor. 
This project includes members of my family, separated by distances spanning the circumference of the planet, and friends from eras of my life so distinct from each other it is as though they occurred in separate dimensions.
But they are not separate. 

This installation launched at Eggtooth Productions
Full Disclosure Festival: Radical Interconnectedness
Turners Falls, Massachusetts
