Scenic (Re)production consists of stations installed at scenic vantage points along a stream in South Windham, VT. At each station, participants are invited to imagine and recreate the mechanics of the mills that shaped the economic and natural history of the area. Written prompts are given, but no other props or imagery are provided.

By reenacting the dynamics of power production in the landscape and substituting their bodies for the mill machinery, participants become part of the scenery, and onlookers are invited to photograph the landscape during these reenactments.
