The rhythms of Steve Reich's Clapping Music (1972) provide the structure for my silver wall drawing installation in the tiny gallery littlebigspace. Reich's minimalist composition is written for two performers to play entirely by clapping. I practiced the shifting part of the composition on my own today:

The rest of this week, leading up to the opening of the show Saturday, a succession of friends will join me to strike the companion rhythm on the opposite wall while I continue to practice the shifting part you see here. Wearing silver thimbles on all our fingers and striking the walls instead of clapping, we mark the walls with silver from our thimbles, leaving a visual trace of our engagement with the music and each other.

    The video is a teaser! It's like step one, the first movement of the composition. I can't wait to see/hear the other half!
