A day of film screenings of Sarah Cameron Sunde’s durational performances along with community crafts and participatory walks centered around the video artworks, drawing awareness to water, time and rising sea levels. See website for craft and walk schedule. Two video works, 36.5 / Te Manukanukatanga ō Hoturoa, Aotearoa-New Zealand and 36.5 / Bay of All Saints, Salvador, Brazil, will play simultaneously in a four-channel installation outside on the waterfront from 8:08 AM – 8:31 PM, a duration that relates to the timing and length of the full tidal cycle in Aotearoa on May 16, 2022, the day that work was created. Each video work is part of the series, 36.5 / A Durational Performance with the Sea, in which the artist created nine site-specific performances and video artworks that engage the public in conversations about deep time and sea-level rise. For the project, Sarah Cameron Sunde stands in a tidal bay for the full tidal cycle (12-13 hours) as water engulfs her body and then reveals it again. She partners with local organizations and invites the public to participate by standing in the water with her and by marking each passing hour from the shore. These works have been created with hundreds of people in communities around the world: Maine, Mexico, San Francisco, the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Brazil, Kenya, and Aotearoa-New Zealand.
