"One of the great, great documenters of our eco age
--Tim Morton, Ecology Without Nature
See photos from this project, Another Storm is Coming, at her website www.judynatal.com.
During her meditative "Breathed on the Waters," a monk, a priest and a gospel singer offer up chants, prayers and songs — pleas to their various gods to provide safety from hurricanes. Their altar/stage appears to be the remnants of a home's concrete foundation in some not-fully-recovered coastal town."
