Completely improvised, this piece was created in a patch of tall willow. We harvested the willow on site and created an immersive world within the willow patch to explore, sit, and observe the surrounding wetland and meadow.

  The early spring arrival of Red Winged Blackbirds provided the soundtrack and inspiration for the build. Berks’ Senior Ecologist Larry Lloyd told us (among other things) “Don’t fight the site,” and this simple reminder to work with what nature is already doing elegantly articulated a guiding principle for the project.

That fall, Philadelphia-based Afrofuturist writer, filmmaker, poet and Assistant Programs Director at Cinespeak Vernon Jordan III led a two day, free outdoor filmmaking workshop in partnership with Barrio Alegria, Berks Nature, and Cinespeak.
