Lake Powell is a man-made reservoir that provides power to the lower basin states of the United States of America. Established in 1956 along the Arizona-Utah border, the United States government selected the site for a damming project that would shift the lives and impose itself on the indigenous humans and nonhumans of Page, Arizona. The dammed water of Lake Powell would subdue the Colorado and San Juan rivers,186 miles and 72 miles, and create 1,960 miles of shoreline. The dam has reduced prehistoric, historic, and religious sites of value, with the Navajo people losing at least two defined sacred places. This 15-minute video performance contains a series of responses and interactions between the artist as both visitor and trespasser, the land (home, public, unknown) and the life (indigenous, invasive, sacred) among Lake Powell. as an attempt to remediate pre-existing ideas and misconceptions of landscape and nature and to work towards the creation of a new story for a ravaged land and people of the Earth.
