Rift/Rise: Installation Documentation

1986, 5 min, color, sound

Myers writes that Rift Rise is a meditation on "destructive force, its inevitability, and its ultimate symbiosis with deeper cycles of being, as the inextricable link between decay and regeneration." In what she terms a "confrontation of landscapes," three video monitors stand in a circle of black stone slabs, opposite three parallel monitors hanging from birch trees. Images of destruction, conflagration and renewal are inextricably interwoven as Myers points to "the mutual exchange of catastrophe and renewal, rupture and harmony."
