permanence in a river

(Ella Dumaresq, Shari Cohen)

Ella and her friend Shari arrived. We were lucky enough to walk down the beach and find that a excavator had connected a trench from the Inlet to the Ocean. A great rush of water flowed into the waves. Ella and Shari navigated the water and we explored shapes and holding positions that contrasted against the fluidity of the moving water. A metaphor of trying to find permanence in the persistent flow of time perhaps? Or holding on to other people to find a sense of stability in the chaos.
