Responding to Rhythms – Curator Prompts
The music that I choose to have in my studio has always impacted the things that I create. When I was in school the first one in the studio after dinner got to choose the music for the night. I learned quickly how significant the role of music was in my creative production. I make entirely different work with speed metal than with smooth jazz.
In Grad school I shared a studio with a stone carver. The consistent tap of his hammer and chisel created a background beat for the studio. As I was sanding my wooden sculpture I would often slide into a rhythm with that tapping. It was the rhythm of the room.
Rhythms are just repeated patterns in motion or sound.
How do rhythms drive your creativity?
How do these patterns express themselves in your forms?
How is your work responding to rhythms?
