Bodies of water are typically deemed outside of ownership. As public spaces they serve as rare surviving examples of a commons, a space that is self governed by the surrounding public. In the winter these northern Maine lakes become populated by small make-shift shacks, temporary structures for gathering and fishing. "Common Ground" translates the intimacy of these winter huts, allowing us to be at once outside and inside, isolated and together.
