Winter Pressings by Mary Ellen Long. These wrapped scroll forms hold gatherings found at the "burial" site. "Each year before the first snowfall, I lay paper of various sizes and forms on the earth. This paper becomes buried under the winter snows to then be harvested in the spring. This ritual documents the passage of time and the amount of snowfall that particular winter. This method is a little like printmaking with nature - the earth being the plate and the snow being the press."
