Textile / Silks / Performance

These silk collages / scrolls are meant to be a set backdrop for a performance, entitled simply Flag Dance. The colors and notations on the silks are directly influenced by the artist’s experience with synesthesia listening to the Chopin Preludes. The notations on the silk illustrate the pathways and main dynamics of the choreographed movement suites of the Flag Dance. The gestures of the dance are simple and large scale, inspired by communication gestures on ships, called Flag Semaphore.
