About The Lateral Line
Our work is about homecoming, coming home. In the contemporary pseudo culture and its insistent values of "transience" and "progress" we seek to connect to the natural fundament of life here; the sea wet temperate forests of the Pacific Northwest with its rain grey skies, holy evergreens and teeming salmon.
Our work tries to embody the meeting of the folkloric to the human imagination and the fateful native ecologies that sustain us.
Salmon and Raven have been here since the last ice; they are our proper tutors.
