Eames Armstrong: Fog, 2016 Location: Performance begins at 842 New Hampshire Avenue NW In three performances during Turf and Terrain, the artist writes a collection of texts on brick paths using only water and a paintbrush. Rapidly disappearing as they dry, the watery words meditate on the often-futile process of capturing memory, history, and legacy.
