The Hiker's Flag (2011)

The Hiker's Flag
Wool, Hitchhiker's, Wood staff cleaned by Beaver. Leather

An emblem pattern made of hitchhiker burrs, holding to wool; as it would during a hike. The wood staff was pulled from a creek, and has been chewed clean by a beaver.

The Hiker's Flag is a comment on the strange concept of ownership of land from natures point of view. The Flag can be contradictory to History how Flags have been used to mark territories. Or it can be seen as some kind of nationalism of nature, that Nature doesn't have it's own voice and should be better represented and protected.

Robbie Basho - Visions of the Country

Homage to Basho's Country

leather tooled teardrops
fires to melt the rain
ballet pianos banshee howls
steel string skipping stones
descriptions of the immaterial / by blind poets
edging the summit echo to hold the heavens

Wild Flower Arrangements

    Three early summer wild flower arrangements from the woodlands.

Saturday, 2 July 2011

A thick fog subdued the Canada day fireworks, then was suffocated by a major thunderstorm. The Thunderbird came down from Amneki Mountain, to remind us what Thunder Bay fireworks are. I heard the lightning’s whip travel from distant blocks like giant dominoes hitting each other, creating a ripple in the foundations, to arrive under my feet and carry on down the land. Everything became microscopic.
