This instagram account @christine.l.riek began in January 2016 and forms part of a larger project, Rock Paper Scissors Arugula, that began in January 2015. Rock Paper Scissors Arugula is a daily photographic diary within walking distance of home. The project is daunting and was not begun lightly, as I knew it would make me look at my complicated feelings about the place I have called home for the past 20 years, the changes taking place here, and my own agency in those changes.

The project continues today, and includes the following sub-projects:

  • the fable of the stump and the glacial erratic
  • #rockpaperscissorsarugula
  • #staidbeneathmyfeet
  • #lawnguistic
  • #oneshootingoneswan
