Joan Truckenbrod explores the life cycle of salmon in this projection piece that includes sounds of rushing water and a simulated stream environment. Sharp digital images bring the viewer into the virtual world of the fish, as if to invite comparisons between the tragic poignancy of their lives and our own. The artist teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
