Participatory presentation of the Serpent River Book

  • c3: Initiative 7326 N Chicago Ave Portland, OR 97203 (map)

Published in 2017 by Caycedo, the Serpent River Book combines archival images, maps, poems, lyrics, satellite photos, with the artist’s own images and texts on river bio-cultural diversity, in a long and meandering collage. The fluctuating publication can frame many narratives. As a book it can be opened, pleated, and read in many directions. It also has a performative potential to it, functioning as a score, or as a workshop tool. The books gathers visual and written materials compiled by the artist while working in Colombian, Brazilian, and Mexican communities affected by the industrialization and privatization of river systems.
