Curious Lightning

story wayfinding-guided by ancient wisdom and modern insight


SWS23 shortlisted
Curious Lightning Nantucket is Cinema Wood and Dakota Clearwater LaCroix. Their cinematic audio creations are sparked by a radical curiosity that seeks to explore storytelling and story listening as an invitation beyond the traditional narrative story structures and styles in hopes of evoking the spirit, wonder, and poetry of our relationships to space as it transmutes into place.

corpse road

Also known as corpse way, coffin route, coffin road, coffin path, churchway path, bier road, burial road, lyke-way or lych-way. “Now is the time of night, That the graves all gaping wide, Every one lets forth his sprite, In the church-way paths to glide” – Puck in Midsummer Night’s Dream. A path used in medieval times to take the dead from a remote parish to the ‘mother’ church for burial. Coffin rests or wayside crosses lined the route of many where the procession would stop for a while to sing a hymn or say a prayer. There was a strong belief that once a body was taken over a field or fell that route would forever be a public footpath which may explain why so many corpse roads survive today as public footpaths. They are known through the UK.
