Michael Dooley on violin
The Swell Gallery, San Francisco, CA
Concept: Nathalie Brilliant collected san from Death Valley for her piece, "wind to sand." She lay naked in the sand for 2 hours, in a dark room, with a violinist close by playing shrieking sounds as indication of wind. When the wind would howl, or violin would play, Nathalie would slowly move her body suggesting winds affect on nature and movement within nature.
