Path of the Wind

Artists: Grace. J
Material: Wood and acrylic on wood panel
Size: 16W x 20H

Without the ability to read music a composer uses dice to write scores. In this personalized language the amount of dots rolled on the dice signify different musical notes. Inspired by this novel approach to a familiar toy, Grace J invites viewers to move the dominoes and blocks on their artwork to co-create new combinations.

The dice are inspired by musical notation and the scores of Japanese composer Joe Hisaishi.

From a distance, the viewer is presented with a grid structure of white cubes that blend into the gessoed base. The shadows from the cubes add dimension to the plane. Upon closer examination, the viewer becomes aware that the cubes are dice, each with methodically placed holes drilled into the pieces.
