Imprint Your Love
For five hours and three days, the New York Times-celebrated flutist Margaret Lancaster is confined in a metal grid cage—a physical metaphor for her heart. She intimately performs music based on five original poems that contemplate various notions of love. The sounds of Lancaster’s heartbeat and flute performance are integrated with the computer-processed sonorities. Lancaster additionally speaks, vocalizes and moves around as she explores her confinement. Imprint Your Love attempts to artistically highlight the core of humanity beating serenely under our violence, fear and surveillance-driven world.
