BELL 8 is a meditative installation named after the navigational buoy in Long Island Sound, near the mouth of the Connecticut River. This attempt to inspire the sense of expansion and bliss one has afloat offers a chance to re-charge. As you surrender to the continual shifts at sea, you can release your impulse for control, and embrace change.

Already presented by Long Island City Arts Open and The Waterfront Museum in Red Hook, BELL 8, now in Tribeca for July-August, 2017 on the Lilac, offers 21′ projection, on one-three surfaces entwining the views from the bow, the stern, and  within.  A dream midway acknowledges our collective sorrow over the damage we’ve done to the sea and our attempts to correct our wrongs.
