Farm League presents an original film directed by Kellen Keene on woodcarver and artist Aleph Geddis. Carved over a span of four months out of his studio in Orcas Island, WA, Kellen followed Aleph's process building an 18 foot western Red Cedar totem by hand. His work stands as a modern day homage to an art form rarely seen, with an attention to detail often overlooked in an age of immediacy. Click here for more of Aleph's work: http://www.alephgeddis.com
