    Body of Water: Dawn Kramer

    Presented by at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Pozen Center

    June 3 - June 4, 2011


    Body of Water: Dawn Kramer

    Body of Water explores the delicate relationship between human beings and the sea. The earth's surface is covered with about 71% water, with less than 1% of it available to support all living things. The human body is filled with 55%-78% water. Humans and the sea are deeply connected, yet the negative human impact on our oceans has been vast.

    The video installation consists of several silent video-movement poems made in different parts of the world, including the coast of Maine, Kyoto, Japan and the Ligurean coast of Italy. These short site-specific videos envision the human figure at a small scale in relation to our marine/terrestrial environment, thus imagining a better balance between the two. The work also continues Kramer’s exploration of the mysteries of Buddhist philosophy, questioning the boundaries of “self.”

    50% of admissions will be donated to the Japan Disaster Relief Fund at the Boston Foundation.
