The Smoldering Forest

In this episode of the project, the experimental forest at Sagehen Creek (near Tahoe, CA) and the experimental forest of the Om Corporation (which circulates in my narrative), collide, bringing history, mythology, and science into conversation with one another across time and space. Originally imagined as a film, the project had intended to use human-powered solutions for the production. However, since the most environmentally-friendly film is one that never gets made, the project now exists as a performance of the film. In this iteration, scrolling becomes the method that bridges between ancient forms and digital technologies.
