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.

A 21′ projection, on one to three surfaces entwining the views from the bow, the stern, and  within, BELL 8  is a love song to nature, a visual massage to alleviate stress, with a dream midway acknowledging our collective sorrow over the damage we’ve done to the sea and our attempts to correct our wrongs.
