MOUNTAIN

Mountain is not a sentence. 

When I describe it to people, I talk about how amazing Kris is- Mountain is her second full length choreographic work (her first was A Faint Existence and we collaborated on that too). Mountain is an exploration of time and movement. The flash of a human life span relative to the time it takes for a Mountain to form. It is also an expression of structures that are invisible to us because we are inside them, or too close to see them.Creating the imagery for Mountain was inspired by the play of light on water particles and the horizontal lines in the space describe the topography of a landscape we can’t quite see. Kris works with images and collaborating with her, I keep wanting to create images that are invisible which is kind of a funny thing to want to do as a designer. A sort of impossible task like the impossible task of trying to describe forces that operate around us that we don't perceive.
