catch and release…

a public filtering ritual-a merger of flows with Cara Tomlinson and friends at Crystal Lake Boat Ramp, Corvallis, OR.

Tuesday, August 20 from 12:30-12:33pm

The Big Sandy is a riverway essential to the ecological/biological/economic and spiritual health of Kentucky and West Virginia. It is one of the most polluted waterways in the country. Much of this is due to the various forms of aggressive coal mining found along its flanks. In this ritual.performance, water recently collected in the Big Sandy will be released into the Willamette River.
