From the inside out

The passage of time connects all things. From the Berkeley mudflats seen through Bruce Baillie’s lens in California Report #6 to the otherworldly Amanita, this program weaves a tapestry of inner and outer landscapes. Teenagers interpret the mysteries of life and death through dance. Dorothy Wiley offers an everyday journey through a head of cabbage. Buildings expand and crystals grow. Josie Ramstad’s animated fantasy reminds us that the oddities of being human are part of nature. Dorothy Fadiman shines a poetic light on the soul’s multifaceted dimensions, and Survival Run navigates the psychogeography of the Dipsea Race to the finish line.
