Carole Kim (visuals) and Laura Steenberge (sound) explore worlds within worlds within a micro installation that slowly evolves. A glass house suggests a permeability between exterior and interior. Particles of solidity dissolve into cloudy organic trails. Are we reassured or made more vulnerable by our ephemeral, loving attention to detail?
As performed May 30, 2020 for the on-line network A/V salon OptoSonic [e]Lab (Katherine Liberovskaya & Ursula Scherrer) and NowNet Arts (Sarah Weaver)

Hunkering down these past months, Kim sought solace in the details. Inventing libraries of custom particle emitters, Kim links these new "brushes" to her ongoing love of drawing and the micro-sensitivity of the gesture. Trails form clusters that float,momentarily obfuscate then dematerialize. (d(e)volve) is based on an online performance with longtime collaborator and sound designer Paul Chavez, exploring the means that are available to us now to still connect in the moment through attentive improvisation.
