Video of Salmon jumping and struggling upstream to spawn, is projected into an empty model house. The house is on top of four tall pillars, rising the house above the ground. The video image continues through the windows onto the adjacent wall, with the salmon rushing over images of elderly people mounted behind window frames. The sound of the rushing water in the creek and the waterfalls reverberates through the gallery. The projected light embodies the spirit.
The model house is 25 inches high by 20 inches deep by 48 inches wide. It is mounted on pillars at eye level in the gallery. The installation occupies an area 12 feet by 16 feet.
