Video Stills from: "Water is Taught by Thirst", 2014



Water, is Taught by Thirst is the first line of an Emily Dickinson poem written approximately 1835. In an increasingly individualized society, this video (and poem) draw attention to the ying and yang of the everyday. Without the past, there is no present; without the present, there is no future.

Water, is taught by thirst.

Land – by the Oceans passed.

Transport – by throe –

Peace – by its battles told –

Love, by Memorial Mold –

Birds, by the Snow.
