On the Edge

Flowers encircle three small baskets filled with questions about who will take responsibility for dead trees, cloned humans, and other desperate challenges facing humanity. Participants are invited to make simple movements and to balance flowers on different body parts. They are asked to take questions and read them aloud, opening a dialogue.

Pit is an homage to the labor that took place during the years of the Calama women who searched incessantly for the rest of their families in the Atacama Desert.
