a couple stills and a short video intro done with 6/2/16's second temporary installation on both sides of noon, this at Buttermilk Falls... 

Buttermilk Falls or Nevele Falls, Ellenville, NY
(approximate 50' drop at the main falls in background)
temporary installation
this art piece is about 8' x 20' as an entire spread laid flat and is an assemblage of 123 paintings ("labels") done 2014 - 2015 with beeswax and natural pigments on recycled labeled cardboard box flaps of various dimensions. They are tied together with hemp twine allowing an overall flexibility for/with installations at different waterfall sites. the Eastern slopes of the Shawangunk and Catskill Mountains West of the Hudson River in New York State. I've decided to also be looking at Falls in MA, in the Pioneer Valley and Berkshires over the summer with my travels... I'm researching about 70 waterfalls. I’ll photo and video document this process/ional. 
with using biodegradable materials the installation work will culminate at the bottom of the last installation and/or be recycled and/or shown and offered as individual labels w/hemp as separate art works, photos/videos and possible book format when funding becomes available… this will relate much with my painting construction's process with Waterfall installation wear and tear. with its' eventual return to Earth with the Fall...
~this is a collaborative with Nature~

Water falls are an oxygenating and cleansing geographical phenomena with 

Light/Air(Ether), Fire, Color,  Earth, Water and Sound healing properties acknowledged 

with its' placement in varying spaces defined with waterfalls...

this is the link to the first installation at High Falls in High Falls, NY.
