Make Mountains

April 5, 2009

Last Friday I made it to the U of I quad during an event by local artist Bonnie Fortune called Make Mountains. Participants were instructed to assume a stance similar to downward facing dog.  I participated as long as my wrists would let me, and then went on my way after snapping this photo.
Make mountains

We don’t have any mountains here, and the flat land seems boring and barren sometimes. This performance gesture was a nod to those communities suffering from mountaintop removal practices.
