The Golden Seed

The Golden Seed is a single-channel video installation, a moving votive image that celebrates the cycles of fertility: birth, death, regeneration.

golden Seed " ...and soon, as spring approaches, the long ears of grain would ripple like a horse's mane in the wind, and the fertile furrows would fill with harvested corn..."
- Homer, Hymn to Demeter
Music: 17th century Russian Orthodox liturgy
