Caecilia Tripp & Karen D. McKinnon
And Still I Rise / The Water Dancer Monument 
 
The uprooting Immersive Afrofuturistic Water Dancer Film Installation Monument is born out of the urgency of Black Lives Matter, the urgency to unbury the long drowned history of South Florida. A beautiful, healing, empowering and spiritual Celebration of collective consciousness. A Water Dancer Monument of mourning and uprising of all the Beauty lost in the infinite deep echoing ocean. Here and beyond, bonding in an irreversible entanglement with the Black Anthropocene. Drifting the waterways, in a poetic Act of Defiance and Magical Empowerment. Thriving into new futurities, where the past and the present transforms into imagining possible futures, as beloved author Octavia Butler claims:
 
All that you touch
You Change.
 
All that you Change
Changes you.
 
The only lasting truth
is Change.
 
from Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler
