camminando | M~M 2014: from Earth to Water and Fire

The second day of the M~M 2014 took to places where the land intersects with water. The 9 km walk on the beach connecting Point Lonsdale to Ocean Grove was particularly challenging, for the walking on wet soft sand. But the views of the Bass Strait were stunning and calming was the sound of the surf. The walk  headed west offering views of the sun setting behind the dunes.


From the Ocean Grove Beach 3 relaxing km of paths took to the final destination: the Barwon Heads River Mouth -the second M of the M to M. In the final ceremony the water from the You Yangs, carried in the canoe was poured into the ocean, and the canoe was set on fire.
The canoe on fire and its disappearing into the water was particularly moving: I have just heard a few hours earlier of the passing of the art curator and friend Rinaldo Funari,who pioneered computer and video art in Italy.
Good bye Rinaldo!
