Traces of Wind and Water: This video installation is made up of three sections: one section visually replants large trees on the site, their swaying tops visible from the street below; another transforms the Strand into an architectural/natural waterfall with a constant flow; and in the third, wild grasses spring up and dance in the wind. The sections will be on rotation throughout the month.
* Best seen near the intersection of Columbia Rd and Hancock St

I Georgie Friedman chose to highlight the site's connection to these many layers of complex history, to be aware of our present moment, our feet on the ground, our eyes to the sky, but to feel connected to the larger world, the larger history, remembering that through it all, there has been the wind, and the water.
All footage was filmed by Georgie Friedman. The trees, grasses and reeds footage was filmed in Millennium Park, August, 2016.
