In May of 1998, I did an eight day sun-rise meditation. Each day my task was to be present with my experience and chart the experience with charcoal on paper. What I ended up with were maps of phenomena: birds flights and songs, garbage truck sounds, shifting shadows, body sensations, images from the environment (clouds, hills, the sun, etc.).

I continued these drawings throughout 1998 as a practice of being present. Creating maps of the moment.

In "Almost There" I performed this process as an action in front of an audience. Again my interest was this question of presence.
