Pine, willow, cranberry dye, cochineal, pine tar, leather strap, found iron tine cultivator

A set of tools made for a walk tracing the perimeter of an aerial bomb training site, located in an ecologically rare dwarf pine plain, during the season’s first snow. A small video camera strapped to the back of my head captured a receding landscape and the mark making action in video. The research for this project began with an excavation of personal memory related to site that resulted in a written and photo essay (see printed book, tools for excavating virgin snow).
