Herkimer Diamonds is a nugget of information and sensations about people exploring the boundaries of their bodies and their friends' bodies, how things fall apart and stick together, layers of structures and lack thereof. Like shifting weather patterns, it is a system of botched intimacy, group behaviors, linking up, getting lost, found or swept up in the connection. The piece shapeshifts between abstract and humany realities.
