“encaustic/earth/prayer/poem” (00:07:47) by Nik Liguori. USA, 2023

Visionary impressions of a long overdue vernal equinox. A vertiginous and textural tone poem describing the semiotics of spring through lucent, hand-crafted frames. Out of winter’s harsh grasp, some kind of promise grows.

“Still, the profound change/has come upon then: rooted they/grip down and begin to awaken…” -William Carlos Williams, “Spring and All”

Pebbles Underground is focused on showcasing and promoting experimental, avant-garde, underground, and no-to-low budget projects by artist-humans from all over the world. Absurd, uncanny, witty, humorous, slow-video – all are welcomed, and loved. Pebbles Underground is an independent project not funded by any government or corporation, and we intend to keep it that way. Main source of funding is personal donations from humans organizing the project, who are artists themselves, and the main drive of the project is formed by the energy and involvement of the organizers, and the public.
