Over these past few months I've been taking my Anchor/Cradle around the city with me. Yep, on the metro too. It has been part of healing process of sorts, where while I carry it I do some personal processing. Since the Anchor/Cradle is so large and awkward the act of carrying it reminds me to stay focused on the task at hand which is to be continuously introspective (and not to run into anyone (literally)! Which I have. twice.) This is vague I know, partly because it is perhaps too personal and partly because I am still deciding what it means and where it is going. What I do know is that it has begun to make me kind of sad, so I'm putting the project on hold for a little while. Maybe in a few months I will want to pick it up again. For now the Anchor/Cradle sits on my porch where it will soon be consumed by Montreal's winter. Some rusting should occur on the fabric which I like.
The working title for this project is Fragments of an Anchor/Cradle. Above is some video documentation of one of my walks.
Thanks for stopping by this space :)
