Inspired by their live show at, “The Stone”, NYC July 1, 2015.
Inspired by Listening to Miles Davis’ “Concierto de Aranjuez”. This reads left to right with the clicky sounds of castanets on the left, and a general gestalt of the song on the right.
Created from the sound of the movements of the robots my classmates constructed.
“How Long Can I Keep My Balance Before I Fall Into Infirmity?” Silk on linen, with linen cord, metallic and cotton floss and thread 24″x36″
