This project is an investigation of consumption and production; focusing on the lines between need and want, waste and re-use. We considered the effects of advertising, government and cultural situations and how those elements influence our personal choices during the development of this piece. With an original score by John Kasiewicz, Satiate or Salvage consists of minimal phrasing, banded, mathematical relationships, and recycled patterns that explore our continuously changing awareness of need versus want, consumption in relationship to space, and the processes of production and recycling.
Explores the journey of childhood’s playfulness and simplicity to the realization of the complexities and limitations that accompany age. I am fascinated with dreams concerning flight and how we often out-grow these dreams as we get older. This piece investigates the freedom we have as children to dream that we have superhuman powers, and how we loose that wild imagination. What gets in the way of us reaching those imaginary heights? What do we learn as adults that inhibits our ability to imagine and dream with the same sense of innocent abandon?
This project began with simple interviews. I asked to hear about a task or event in someone’s life that took a long time to accomplish or felt like it took a long time to accomplish; how they felt in the beginning, middle and end of this experience and who was with them along the way. I wanted to see how people remembered events in their lives and if there are certain similarities in the emotions felt behind those memories regardless of what the actual task or event involved. This piece is an abstract representation of the journey that is remembered from the experiences I compiled from my interviews. The mood is inquisitive and exploratory, as if trying to remember an old memory so that you can share it with someone.
