Sharon Lockhart, Double Tide (Jen Casad, South Bristol, Maine, July 22, 2008, Sunset), 2009, 16 mm film transferred to HD (single-channel installation), 50 minutes, film still

Double Tide documents the work of a female clam digger in the mudflats of coastal Maine. Expanding the focus of Lockhart’s films Lunch Break (2008) and Exit (2008), Double Tide creates a portrait of a relatively unseen and singular form of labor. Filmed on the rare occasion in which low tide occurs twice within daylight hours—once at dawn and once at dusk—Double Tide takes as its subject a worker whose job is defined by the most elemental and unchangeable forces of nature.

While the center of this project is the strength and determination of women, I think there is also a message about the viability of the aesthetic experience. Bringing beauty into the world is a worthy action and experiencing it is both healing and inspiring. I hope the movements and positioning of the body in relation to these heavy objects call to mind the strength, determination, and resilience that I’ve witnessed over the last few years in my work with the young women of Rudzienko. I also hope that viewers see in the arrangements of these simple sticks the possibility for finding beauty in the everyday world that surrounds them.
