Become a Patron & Spark a Verse

Artist in Residence 2016, Stephanie Miracle

Ecclesiastes 1:8-182:17-266:7-12; 8:6-17:

All things are wearisome,

   more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing,
   nor the ear its fill of hearing.
What has been will be again,
   what has been done will be done again;
   there is nothing new under the sun.

(Ecclesiastes 1:8-9)

He has made everything beautiful in its time.

(Ecclesiastes 3:11)

I am sharing a working in progress video that shows my process of playing and pondering with some of the material we have been experimenting with over the past two months. I am not sure things are going in the direction I was expecting. That is part of the fun of it, I suppose. Being surprised by what is revealed.

I am also including a picture from this project. It is a documentation of a live performance. The man on the right hand side of the photo, a dear friend and supporter of my work, died unexpectedly just two weeks ago. This tragic event plunged me much deeper into Ecclesiastics. In my wild tumbling through questions of life and death I feel comforted by the text.
