Oryza sativa, commonly known as Asian Rice, is used as snacks, desserts, main courses, alcoholic beverages, and in religious and cultural ceremonies across the globe. A saple food in this region, it often serves as a canvas, to be decorated with meat and vegetables. Through an intermedial installation we illuminate the invisible ‘rice moments’ in the habitat of our busy urban landscape. For a moment, we make visible the oft-neglected, silenced nature of our lives.
Sarabande for table, chairs, and bodies
Empty spaces; imposed muteness; the body as a medium and subject of silence. Through a process of bandaging and/or embalming the body, we negate, hide, subdue, cure, preserve, and glorify the body. Working with an eclectic range of materials we explore the meanings and consequences of silence in explicit and implicit relations: from the ambiguities of modified anatomy, to connotations of the misused body.
She was like the morning breeze. There was a simplicity in the way she threw back her head to laugh – the kind of girl who stole everyone’s heart with a soft flutter of her eyelashes. She was love, and she felt love, an insatiable desire to breathe life into the world around her. She saw good in everything and everyone, believing, trusting, almost too much. Was she blind or did she choose not to see?
