Collaborators: Lauren Nagel, Common Raven
Documentation: Masha Lifshin
Video documentation of a chance encounter along the ridge of Santa Cruz Island's Colorados Range, on the long trail from the research station to Coches Prietos Anchorage. We never made it to the ocean, but we did document a collaborative sound piece. This raven seemed to be confidently ruling over the shack. Inside it, amongst piles of discarded electrical equipment, we later found a wooden plaque carved with the raven's likeness.
