The Shade Sail is a large banner with a shadow that creates a sunlit path on the ground below and frames a continuous line in the sky. The banner has two distinct shapes that become indivisible as a cast shadow on the ground. Similarly, the two mirrored lines within the shapes are united as one path of light on the ground and as a continuous line of background and sky.
The Shade Sail has traveled across the US. See below the different locations and links to information about the respective native people's territories via Native Land Digital.
This piece has been a way to ask questions:
How can I see past the us/them, either/or, binary scenarios and instead open up to an abundance of possibilities?
How can I observe the harmony of differentiation and wholeness, of duality and oneness?
How can I be gentle and connected to the earth, my environment, myself and others?
Visiting the Shade Sail:
Take a moment to document(take pictures or video) of your unique moment and perspective of the Shade Sail—the light and shadow, the environment.
Take a moment, or as much time as you’d like, to simply be and observe the light, the movement, the stillness, without ‘capturing.’
As a mirror image of itself the line can be followed or traced like a labyrinth, but instead of walking into the center and back out, you can follow the line toward the center and back out through a different vantage point.
for connecting Shade Sail with the people of Newburgh!
