June Artist in Residence
A series of Water Ceremony performances to christen the Hayes Valley Art Works land with the blessing of water and water play hosted by artist Doctor Oliver Mellan.
When begin to view the method and energy in which any given task is done,
we can start to see the great value in the ceremony and process of things, people, art and experiences. We can see ceremony as art.
The bowl as the stage. A container for water.
The body, a stage and a container of water.
Light & Spirits
Call in the seven directions North, South, East, West, Up, Down, and Within.
Call in the elements of Fire, Air, Earth, Water and the dissolving of the illusion of time.
The sound of the bowl is like the breathe. Breathing form into water.
The creation in water, a sound vibration. A wave of energy printing all that we see in this water filled 3D reality.
Birth is the process of pulling out of a watery state and beginning a calendar counted spin around the sun.
Examine a water molecule in the center of a vortex could be spinning faster than the speed of light.
Science now knows.
Light becomes the time and our metric for spins.
how do we play?
