The Fenway, Boston, MA
Petrichor Performance Collective

1628 was performed in the Fenway as part of the "Earthing" performance series organized by Petrichor Performance Collective. All performances were developed and performed within the Emerald Necklace Parks.

Using four pieces of sod as a "bridge", I moved quickly from one tree to the next; only stepping on the sod. When reaching the end I would walk back, grab the last piece, place it at the front, and continue onward, repeating as necessary. Eventually resting from exhaustion, I thought about the connections between time, work, and change while performing a laborious action. 

The tree was tagged with it's planting date. 1628.
