07/13/09 KORAN BEAT / Chicago, IL
A passage from the Koran and a beat was running through this man’s head. I saw him humming it as he was walking by the Mantra Trailer on Michigan Ave. I don’t know the verse reference to the Koran. If you recognize it please drop me a comment.
02/27/08 HAHA HEE HEE HAHA HA / VCCA, Amherst, VA
This group laugh was recorded at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts. There were seven people in the trailer.
02/14/08 Sunset at the Sunset / San Francisco
Brenda Hutchinson is ringing bells at sunrise and sunset. She is convinced that “something as inarguable as the movement of the earth can be used as a point of unity and awareness among large groups of people who might otherwise find it impossible to agree.”
I’m house sitting for Brenda in the Sunset neighborhood in San Francisco. She lives ten blocks from the ocean. I decided to join her mantra of bell ringing – at least for one day. You can join her too at DailyBell2008.
12/21/07 Mantra Trailer Trailer – struggle
This is the first of a series of Mantra Trailer Trailers that explore transitional states of being. These spring from personal experience but I hope they will translate well enough in the world. This Trailer reflects the way I feel about undertaking such a huge creative project as the Mantra Trailer.
