Artist’s Statement: We are a part of the land we live on. How do we carry pieces of it within us as we move through our lives? How does our shared experience of the land bring us together? In the Grove traces the culmination a guest artist residency that took place at the University of Northern Colorado. The film weaves together footage shot on location and footage from live performance with innovative projection design implementation to create a moving exploration of bodies and landscapes.
