QUIET TIME : String Games

Stories, loops, focus, time.


This project is centered around string figures - an ancient game and meditative tool which arose independently in indigenous communities all around the world. In traditional string games, players use a looped string to make figures which are linked to stories.

This work took place in the late evening as participants experimented with string figures in the ambience of a simple sound and light installation consisting of a super 8 projector - not showing a film but an empty reel - lighting the space and acting as a sound element. 

We filled the screen with shadows, projecting our own experiments and imperfect stories. As the day faded into night, our stories became clearer in the light of the projection.
