Variations on a Ghost (premiere) and Gifts for the Void
Friday & Saturday, June 1 & 2
Variations on a Ghost draws from the ghost signature fad that saw its height at around 1909, where a signature would be written in slow drying ink then quickly folded over to create a new image of peaks and curves. This new work will play on the duality of the folded inscription as well as the newly formed image. It will also layer in the idea of how a person leaves evidence of existence and individuality through their autograph, though when folded into a unique image, remains legally binding as an official mark of their entity.
