The Fabric of the Silence

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Fabric of the Silence was created in 2013 as a social art project at the Performing Art Institute in San Francisco in collaboration with the Collected Works for the performances of Witold Gombrowicz's Princess Ivona. Cast, crew, friends, and community members contributed to the hand-looming of the piece, while posing for a portrait next to the work-in-progress. The final flexible sculpture became a central feature of the play, and has since reappeared in multiple site-specific installations in relation to social projects. The slide shows tell an additional story as they chronicle the contributors alongside the evolution of the work.
