In Entropy. Redress. one live artist, with more than 40 digital contributions from as many collaborators, performs the experience of an identity, a journey, and an expectation.
Artists in California, Oregon, Washington, Illinois, Colorado, Texas, Tennessee, Florida, New York, Massachusetts, Greece, and South Korea were given three instructions and time with a dress custom tailored to fit the live solo performer.
1) Learn a particular meditation practice, crafted to support mindful presence in raw emotional energy. (There were no requirements about the use of this practice.)
2) Generate between 1 and 6 minutes of digital video footage wherein the dress appears. (The footage was forwarded to the Lead Artist for use in creating Entropy. Redress.)
3) Write about your experience with the project.
All of the contributors completed one or more of the instructions. (for a complete list of Artist Contributor/Collaborators, visit www.soikowski.com)
