A series of five, large-scale inkjet prints on fabric, And we move (Pause) is made up of three intersecting elements:  video stills that show a dramatic close-up of a conductor’s back as he leads an orchestra, the compositional score of Czech composer Bedrich Smetana’s Ma Vlast, and the excerpted sound waves of the edited video’s audio of the performance.  The video stills--capturing the moments of music and movement frozen in time--are printed above the musical score.  The wavy lines of the audio levels are embroidered between the two, thus suturing the written language of music to the digital recording of one performance.   Overall, the prints are distinct visual representations of music in relationship to time, and conceptually fuse the optical and the aural.
