“Superficie” A response to our connections between the natural and man-made world. How do our haptic senses respond to environmental impulses? How does the environment react to our actions? Superficie plays with surfaces, touch, textures, movement, and sounds that are both internalized and externalized. “On the Note of Humanity & Unity” A tender ode to the inner world that fuels our strength and the caring hand we all need during turbulent times. “Mooring” For more than 30 years, people have been living on their boats in the mooring field off Dinner Key Marina. Some choose a life on the water. For others, it’s a calling. In Mooring, Mike reflects on life on his boat and the winding channels that brought him to the water. “Offline” When your relationship to the internet changes, from a place of exploration and opportunity to a place of collective action and reaction, it can become challenging to locate the Self.

It is within them that I find the blueprint of life on this confusing planet, it is within them that I feel most my Self. “Mommy, will you play with me?” An uncanny child wrests mother's attention from a Zoom meeting.
