The Warmth of the Curve

The Warmth of the Curve is a series of new  performance, video and installation works exploring the ritual of circumambulation across various religions and cultural traditions. Circumambulation is the ritual walking around a sacred object, drawing the form of a circle in space. The Warmth of the Curve proposes the possibility of inhabiting ritual in a secular context. By exploring ideas that are generally overlooked in the world of the everyday and secular society, this project opens a space for ideas such as residual belief and the loss of the mystical.
