New Project

LUNAR MARE Spring 2023 for The Institute for Curiosity An experiment with textile art in my studio. While felting haiku’s by poet A. Darriulad (f), I studied Schönberg’s Models for beginners in Composition and his notes for the first lessons of Alban Berg.

Inspired by a pearl-shell button that made the moon in my felted textile art, I researched the seas of the moon: LUNAR MARE. Their measurements will inspired the mathematical FORM of the composition. 





Next Performance
