Over a period of 4 days - from sunrise to sunset - Bryson grinds into a sandstone boulder to create a "tinaja" (or basin) to catch rainwater, providing a watering hole for the reticent desert life. This performance takes place in Southeastern Utah, where these tinajas are formed naturally over thousands of years with rainfall and lichens. Bryson's attempt at creating a tinaja in a such a short period speaks to human futility and the desire to leave our mark. While acknowledging these facts, Bryson hopes that the mark she ultimately leaves will provide nourishment for other species and life forms. This laborious and painstaking act provided many hours of meditation on these things.
