Co-Presence of Bodies in Real Time, at Penn State University, invited participants to experience cracking open a walnut as a good omen to start over. In a series of 3 parts, participants approached a long table with walnut ink, pollinator mix imbedded handmade seed paper and feathers to write or draw something that they wanted to let go of. Outside, was a table where black walnut tea tinctures were served in vessels made from local clay and glazed with black walnuts. I engaged in conversations with participants as we cracked open the walnuts with a vice and spoke about a time in our lives when we experienced a good omen, and ate the walnuts together and used the moment as a way to start over. Participants were invited to plant their seed paper as a way to let go of whatever they were holding on to.
