Midori’s Evoco project is an ongoing, multi-phase project about how we create, hold, interpret, and alter memory, as subjective experience and as a neurological process. In this increasingly digitally connected and socially dis/connected world, the group experienced event are held with greater regard, especially as the incident is recounted, recorded, retold, reposted, and more.
Evoco Project begins with an incident that is witnessed by many. A dancer’s form is altered with flowers. Movement is limited and altered. Their body is then painted with sumi. Impressions from the incident are recorded on paper. Then the impressions are interpreted later in recollection and marked with gold leaf and paint. That is then interpreted by silk craftsmen and framed in a scroll.
