A five-channel video installation by Suné Woods, this immersive constellation utilizes scenes of waterscapes to speak about such broad concepts as existence, intimacy, healing, and aquatic ecology, viewed through the lens of Black feminist theory. A newly-commissioned expansion of Aragonite Stars will revive the video originally presented at Hammer Museum in 2018 as part of Made in L.A. The work looks at the important role water plays in the African Diaspora as a place for healing and mythologies regarding water as the home for spirits.

The upcoming installation will feature a twenty-minute video which will be presented as five monumental projections on the walls and floor of the gallery, accompanied by a soundtrack of ambient and discordant sounds by singer-songwriter and musician, Meshell Ndegeocello. The sequencing of the channels follows that of dream fragments or the language of collage. Through the use of non-linear language, Woods connects to how ancestors communicate through dreams.
