PlySpace is hosting the Muncie Symphony Orchestra's 4 by 4 at 4 series on Sunday, April 22nd at 4:00 PM, in collaboration with the resident artist Melissa Joy Livermore.
Four genres of music, from Baroque to Cole Porter, by four strings musicians will be performed in the PlySpace Gallery. During the concert, PlySpace resident artist Melissa Joy Livermore invites the audience to participate in her community collaborative project, Deconstruction.
Deconstruction is a project that invites groups of people to engage in the task of taking a piece of untreated canvas apart, thread by thread. The process is intuitive and allows the participants to focus their attention on the present moment, engaging with those around them, or in this case, the music. Over the last three years, Melissa has performed Deconstruction with groups in China, France, and the U.S. and is excited to bring this performance to Muncie.
Holding the opposite end of the fabric provides the tension necessary to pull each thread from the whole. In a split second, the tension is released and the thread flutters, dropping into a pile. Each thread serves as documentation of time carved out for introspection, intentional conversation, and listening. As a person must slow down to observe the beauty of the falling thread and the environment around them.
