New art works and deep contemplation on cultural considerations centering a collective intraspection on social values, on built spaces, and on harvesting from an eco-system wrought with trauma, "Fruition: Water Holds All Memory" represents an opportunity to re-member our covenants with self, All Beings, and the Earth.
