A group of two dozen people dragged the rope a mile along the beach, over the breakwater in the Provincetown harbor and through town to a gallery showing time-based artworks. In the gallery, texts had been screenprinted in white on the white walls. led by the artist, visitors re-exposed the texts by slowly rubbing the wall with charcoal dust. A stop-animation video of every boulder on the breakwater and a 16mm camera-less film of photogrammed stones selected for their translucency created a pulsing energy in the space. The texts were influenced by chants and memorials, in concert with the silent film and video projections, the words were to be spoken aloud in the space to express the dual history of the breakwater as both a functional earthwork and a memorial site where the ashes of the deceased have been scattered.
