Between Wave & Sky
2011
Polyester interfacing and ink
12' long x 6 wide
The inside edge of the strips are dyed with blue ink making an irregular stripe, along which are written text from Homer’s Odyssey. The combination of the white translucency of the cloth and blue stripes create a rippling image that suggests the movement and ethereality of water or sky. The text calls to mind an ocean of words, appropriate to the Odyssey. This installation was featured as part of a series of performances, “Against the Odds” by the dance group MonkeyHouse. Following a theme of adaptation and transformation, the installation was flattened and moved to other locations in the building for two of the four performances.
