 The project includes three parts - a fish's funeral speech, a seesaw boat, and a floating dock in the Wesserunsett Lake, Maine. The voiceover in the video presents what I call “boat conversations,” produced on a wooden seesaw boat that I built during the Skowhegan residency in 2018. The video is a way to discovering the relationship between the floating dock and a wooden boat leading an uncertain ways of searching. Paddling becomes another compulsive activity, a means of passing time or creating form from next to nothing. The rhythm of paddling bringing hyper awareness of an actual time and labor involved in this project.
