Artist soaking paper in the Mississippi River. I-80 border of Iowa & Illinois, USA. 10/2018
Buy a roll of brown, unwaxed paper. Tear into 22″ x 17″ sheet. Fold the 22″ in half to create a 2-page sheet – finished size 11″ x 17″. Open the pages and gently immerse the sheet in water – lake, ocean, river, pond, stream, rain, snow melt, other. As you do this, bless/pray for/intend healing and good life for the water. When finished, hold the paper up and allow the excess to drip off. Take a photo (or have someone take a photo) of the soaking if you can. Document the name of the body of water (if it has one), where it is located and when you soaked the paper. Return to or send the paper to S.J. Carlisle. Studio 121, Artworks. 310 Railroad Ave., Loveland, CO 80537. If you like, email a photo the soaking to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the information to match with the soaked paper.
