Between Wave & Sky
This installation was commissioned 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 presented in three separate locations and in two different forms. The inside edge of the strips of cloth are dyed with blue ink making an irregular stripe along which is 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 ethereal quality of water or sky. The text calls to mind an ocean of words, appropriate to the Odyssey.
