No man ever steps in the same river twice,
for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.


Rivers is a series of video installations about rivers in their natural, geographical and social complexity.
A river as body of water crossing land encompasses several establishes many different patterns and can be interpreted and perceived from many different perspectives, where the physical and human geography intersect.
The water flow inspires thoughts about the transient nature of life itself and the presence of cycles in many aspects of reality. The 315-mile Hudson river has many different layers which presented from different aesthetics interpretations in about 3 hours of video sequences.
The video projections shown in Hudson Artswalk are one loop of about 15 minutes showing the relationships between the urban fabrics and the river, with focus on the city of Hudson, in an exploration of intersections between nature and the city.

Three different locations/facade for the projections are proposed,:
  • 303 Warren, with projections from the Opera House
  • First Presbiterian Church at Fourth Street and Warren
  • Facade of Nicole Fiacco gallery
