Recursion 1 & 2
This piece was presented as a video installation at the Fukushima memorial event at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC, organized by Eiko Otake. Part 1 incorporates footage from Alexis’ time at the Standing Rock protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) with found footage of past water contamination disasters. Part 2 consists of some of the many Facebook livestreams from February 22-23, 2017, which were uploaded by water protectors while massive police forces raided the camps. She followed with guilt and anxiety from her desk in New York, and collected the footage into a summary of the fear and strength of the water protectors who remained.
