the slow recessional (2021)
In honor of the threatened and endangered salmon and steelhead runs of the Columbia Basin.
Inspired by a line from the poem "Endangered" by Billy Collins: "It is so quiet on the shore of this motionless lake / you can hear the slow recessional of extinct animals / as they leave through a door at the back of the world."
