A collaboration with sound artist Navid Navab, Threads reveals memory as a blueprint of a sensation, volatile and ephemeral in its nature, yet enduring when it encounters paper. This performative installation transmutes the acts of reading and writing into an intricate play of sensations. Every movement, every sound modulates another in immediate vibrational relations. Gestures stimulate objects into sound, agitating the materiality of paper. Drop-spindles suspended in mid-air hold hand-written paper threads, a transcription of correspondence from the artists’ personal collections. Threads draws rhythms from its participants as well as its surrounding environment, reenacting memories in resonance.
