The depiction of drapery in history of art has often pointed to the mastery of the artist and offered possibilities for expression that other details of the subject matter couldn’t. From Renaissance paintings of Giotto and Titian where drapery added emotional charge and weight to the exuberance of colour and vast cloths in the works of Rubens and David, it is an element that underscores and elevates the composition. The interplay of light with textile and movement carries a rhythm within it, which is syncopated by changing air flow. Within each image a section of such a rhythm is shown. The video is a result of a musician improvising a piece of music based on the image they were provided.
