Moss Garden

Moss Garden is the lead single from Kyoto EP, the second of four multimedia projects documenting experiences in Japanese cities.

The track recounts a peaceful walk around the beautiful garden at Saihō-ji, a.k.a. Kokedera (moss temple), and considers the workers quietly tending the grounds with great care and respect.

Site Nonsite

Site Nonsite is a project researching and documenting a connection to place. The site is the source, a place rich with scattered information and experiences; the nonsite is the resulting document, a multimedia abstraction of that place. (These guiding thoughts are adapted from land artist Robert Smithson’s 1968 Theory of Non-Sites .)
