MOSAIC IS COMPRISED OF THREE WORKS THAT EXPLORE OUR COLLECTIVE DREAMS, MEMORIES AND RITUALS.

DREAMS

 

Using original music and visuals inspired by the nighttime dreams and daydreams of a group of children living along the West Bank wall in Palestine, Dreams is an exploration of how the unbound imaginative world of children washes up against and over the physical wall that surrounds their society.

MEMORIES

 

Weaving together stories, poetry, and song traditions of Kurdish women from Turkey and women in central Appalachia, Memories is a musical and visual meditation on love, longing and womanhood.

RITUALS

 

Rituals transposes healing rituals of Morocco, Appalachia, and Java into the structure of the gnawa lila ceremony, which navigates the seven colors of the spirit world. Rituals journeys between the physical plane and the land of the djinns, or spirits.

Mosaic Interactive is supported by the Building Bridges program of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art. Additional residency support provided by the Pocantico Center of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
