Dance Set Installation

Collaboration with Artichoke Dance Company by Daniella Trask

After visiting the Blister Pact exhibition, choreographer Lynn Neuman approached Ian about a potential collaboration. At the time, Lynn was planning a series of performances for the 20th anniversary of the dance company she co-founded, Artichoke Dance Co. One piece in particular, called "Overflow," was about the nature of water, ocean currents, and rising tides. Over the course of the next year, Ian adapted the stitched plastic panels of Blister Pact into a dynamic set for Overflow - inspired by the massive gyres of plastic debris polluting our oceans. 

Overflow was performed three at the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center.
