Hot/Cold Earthship with Heartbeat
45 foot wooden barge filled with earth; soundtrack of heatrbeat and refrigerator unit; oars;
ancient anchor; shipropes; and chains. The earth is frozen, cold to the touch on one end of the ship and warm,
alive with a heartbeat on the other. The earth -- dead and alive.
Commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, and the Art Museum of Tampere, Finland for the "Strata" exhibition.
