Three Moons/Tres Lunas/3つの月

How the moon speaks through the dark—
carving the shores of this world!

Tonight we honor and celebrate three brilliant and beautiful people who quietly and powerfully influence the world in their own ways: Amanda Consuelo García, Rikuku Heshiki, and Kazumi Heshiki. As elders, they are steeped in life’s riches; they are portals to lost places and times, carriers of rarest cargo, bearers of songs and stories that hold the mysteries of life, death and everything between.

Our hope is to bring you into proximity with these people. To shine their light on this cold December eve because it is a warm light and beautiful light.

Our hope is remember better how to be present with our loved ones. How to listen and receive. How to look up to the moon. For we cannot know all the mysteries of the moon, so vastly far away, but we can bask in its light and let its questions reach us.

*
This installation is a continuation of work that Roland Dahwen Wu & Stephanie Adams-Santos have been doing to share their ongoing work around poetry, memory, and honoring our elders.
