2012 listen

Lattice is inspired by the work of Liang Shaoji. His Nature Series incorporates the process of silk being made from hundreds of silkworms - on lattice windows, on stones, on small homemade iron beds or large chains hanging from the ceiling. I find the lattice windows particularly beautiful. 

Lattice was commissioned by the Thin Edge Collective and premiered by Ilana Waniuk and Cheryl Duvall.
