9 palms – motion marks by susan wolf 

“I thought about various ways to define a thoughtful moment of dance and opted for the most personally indulgent: combining art making with motion. Thirty minutes prior to curtain time I set the stage by gathering favorite mark making materials. I set my kitchen timmer to ring at noon. I worked for 60 minutes. The resulting mixed media drawing is 40″ x 8′ on mulberry paper. I documented the making with 2 flip cameras and my little panasonic.”~ Susan Wolf  

Robin Nasatir submitted this video (shot by Erica and Terry) of his pajamas partnering with the Suffolk Wind. This video was shot on March 26th, 2010 at 7pm in Whitnesham, Suffolk, England as part of dance anywhere® – a global, public art performance piece that occurs one day each year.
