Taste the Source (while supplies last)

A Performance Celebrating Water | June 21 2010

I'm pleased to invite you to a wonderful event I will be performing at on Monday June 21st, 2010. The Thinking with Water Project ( is hosting an Artists' panel “Thinking with Water: Beyond Text” from 4:45pm - 6:30pm. A freshwater mermaid will be making a short appearance, offering a taste of her treasured collection of rivers and lakes from various regions of Quebec. Some water samples are out of stock, while others taste like blueberry roots and rocks.

"Moving beyond text and materializing alternate approaches to thinking with water, artists and researchers Sarah Renshaw, Rae Staseson and Gisèle Trudel (Ælab) will present and discuss their work with water. Thoughtful, thought-provoking and materially rich, their artworks, Stream of Consciousness (2010), Water Drawing (2010) and the “conference performance” of light, sweet, cold, dark, crude (LSCDC) (2006-), offer a generative counterpoint to the written components of the Thinking With Water collection. During the opening reception, Emily Rose Michaud will offer a rare tasting of nearby waters."
