Marking Time With(in) the Water is a site-responsive project linking bottom-dwelling small aquatic lifeforms with visual art printmaking processes. Taking place along the banks of the Red Cedar River, the workshop intends to highlight watersheds and the living beings supported within and throughout as integral members of the community. The workshop invites the public to participate in both science and art methodologies – examining portions of water and sediment to isolate and identify aquatic insect species as markers of stream health, and subsequently incorporating collection residue along with other nearby vegetation and organic materials into the creation of photographic prints.
This program is in conjunction with the exhibition 1.5° Celsius which explores the global climate crisis on view in the MSU Museum’s Main Gallery September 6, 2022 – February 25, 2023

Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatized sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.
