Wayfinding Through Time

How do we process the journey through time and space? One way is to use markers of the Earth’s rotation and connect those to celebrations. Something humans have been doing through the ages. This work was inspired by the idea that a celebration of the Earth’s Seasons has many roots in human expression. Groundhog Day originated in the American Town of Punxsutawney. The celebration harkens the end of winter and the return of spring. The beginning of February also marks the Christian Candlemas and the Celtic festival of Imbolc. All these rituals signal renewal, new growth, and movement away from darkness. Seasons change as our earth rotates. There is no denying this. We all cycle along through time in this way. Wayfinding as a song was both an exploration into this phenomenon and a fun romp to mark a change on the spiral of life’s wheel.
