A multi-sensory offering of scent: pine resin soaked incense papers made from leftover paper pulp and absolute, folded into riso-printed black and white film stills: one depicts lily pads on a glittering pond’s surface, and the other a frog
resting on silver, wet earth. This experiential offering echoes the environment of Meaker’s film through scent and image. Four elements of nature come together: water and earth are flattened to paper and reanimated by fire, fed by air. Scent creates atmosphere, and like celluloid, the pine infused paper holds time and place, material and ethereal in its offering.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Fold one strip into an accordion, and light one end, gently blowing out the flame
as soon as it appears. A prayer or intention can be set in this moment.
