The Water Keeper's Library

This week I was blessed to be invited to play my crystal singing bowls in Boston by Artist Faith Johnson to participate in the opening reception of Aether.

During the opening, Faith Johnson Guided us on an amazing journey through her interactive installation "The Water Keeper's Library" to activate the memory of water and experience an exploration of the water libraries that were gathered from around the world.. we connected with drops of water from different samples and ventured through our imagination guided by the story she told, that led us from earth to the very outer reaches of the cosmos and the beginning of water in its elemental form to the wisdom and memory that the water held. I was invited to play my crystal singing bowls along with this journey. We placed local water from Jamaica Pond inside the bowls while we played.... what an honor to participate in this amazing mind expanding and soul deepening experience!

"Aether combines the cross-disciplinary works of five artists: interactive installation and performance artist, educator and community artist Faith Johnson; multimedia and performing artist, educator and organizer, Maria Molteni; performance, film, and interdisciplinary artist Sue Murad; mixed media artist and children’s librarian Meaghan Schwelm and composer and sound artist Amber Vistein. Each artist navigates one of the elements—water, earth, fire, or air—connecting conceptually through a fifth element aether that contains them all. This fifth classical element is said to fill the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere. It was considered in the 19th century to permeate all space, providing a medium through which light could travel. Aether is the quintessence, or poetic/spiritual confluence, where all the elements connect, arching between the physical/material world and the world of the ethereal. "
