KESH
2018, 3 minutes, digital video

synopsis:
”Always Coming Home
A white dog with blue eyes, returning home when old.
A people at home in the left coast wilds as the animals they are. Some half human.
North Owl, half person, raised by a woman of the matriarchal Valley, fathered by a passing Condor warrior.
She said to me, "I am here".
Little Bear Woman, Ursula. Leaping over and through, negative as positive, dreaming our flooded future's past.
Lullabies on wings soaring forward. Ravens slowly spinning, slicing, a dance suspended. To go is to return.”
-Vanessa Renwick

This video was made for the re-release on LP of the cassette of "Music and Poetry of the Kesh", a soundtrack that Todd Barton and Ursula K. Le Guin made to accompany her book "Always Coming Home"
