Choreography of Objects
Choreography of Objects expresses cross-sensorial experiences as a normative part of everyday life. Participatory performances of letters and words allow for objects and bodies to conjoin in a celebration of layered abstractions that the synaesthete negotiates daily. The somewhat rare colored grapheme condition represents a ‘perceived oddity’ in the project and becomes the nexus for collective enrichment. Here we may enjoy and value meaningful gestures outside our own fluency, sharing in translational acts with another’s language and perception.
This project received support from The Rhode Island School of Design, Bauhaus University, PANKE Club, the society for the Anthropology of Consciousness and MOBIUS, a non profit, artist-run organization, whose mission is to generate, shape and test experimental art.
