Camera Obscura Performance, Chewelah, Washington. In the Body of a Prayer. June 2011
Stacks Image 2064
“In the Body of a Prayer” is a 17 by 17 foot camera obscura. The camera obscura works within the power of prayer, but just as we are invited to enter into the body of the camera, we are also invited to enter into the body of a prayer; the physical body of a prayer. It takes a full five minutes for the image to become visible . . . awakened we enter the prayer- body. In this time we have stopped and taken the opportunity to be a part of a living prayer of light. We are being asked to let the Holy Spirit move through us and awaken us from our sleeping. The body of light, the dance of light, is the unsettling but joyous Body of the Prayer. We are not praying in the chapel in this moment of grace, rather the gift of the prayer-body is singing its Beauty through us. In our silence we are witness within a prayer-body to the dancing light and love of the Holy Spirit.
