Conversing Constellation
Katie Stackhouse

Choose a wax stone. Sing to it. Move it in any direction and place it so that it touches any other form in the constellation.

Locate the gold thread. Wrap it around any one object as many times as you like. Place the new object anywhere in the constellation.

Conversing Constellation by Katie Stackhouse investigates the intricate and complex connections that arise from human relations with the natural world by inviting the audience to interact with a sculptural installation through a series of written prompts. Boundaries of control, agency, authorship and surrender to chance are explored through a dynamic ecosystem, in which each interaction creates new and changing assemblages. These dialogues will generate material for a live performance by the artist in a closing event.
