Teem an Installation by Mary Babcock and Christopher Curtin

Suspended horizontal planes of lightweight, translucent silk are blown by rhythmically timed fans as audience members are beckoned to lie beneath this “screen” of textiles that mimic the constant flux of the ocean’s surface. Six shibori hand-dyed silk “rivers” rotate in negative space above the billowing white silk surface below. These “rivers” interact with the ocean as the large silk surface is gently blown up into their paths. Each is affected by the gentle caress that takes place, and the result is mixing of the diaphanous silk and the ephemeral, fleeting movements of the river above.
