13 Moon is a twelve-year calendar created from six performances. The public dates for the performances were linked to natural occurrences: sun and moon alignments, the autumnal equinox, the trajectory of a falling star, or the haze in the sky produced by a harvest. I came to understand the connection between this phenomena and language, later researching the ways in which various cultures named full moons linking those names to words that interested me – murmur, invocation, returning, devotion, faithful, voluptuary, lamentation, tender, temporal, travelers. But also, by belonging to a time and place, these words represented the systems found within, not only my work, but the place over the time of my attention.
