The Oak Cycle
In 2022 I was selected to be an Artist-in-Residence at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA, alongside a cohort of 6 other talented artists in various media including painting, dance, sculpture, and photography.
Mount Auburn Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark, was founded in 1831. It is the first landscaped cemetery in the United States, and has been celebrated since as a horticultural Eden that is one of the most beautiful public spaces in the greater Boston area.
As part of my residency I created The Oak Cycle, an audio-visual piece inspired by the incredible oak tree collection at the cemetery, containing over 450 trees of numerous species. Together with my collaborator Rafi Sofer (audio, video, and co-production), I set out to create a meditative suite that moves between the real and the imaginary, while organically incorporating the natural sounds of the site.
