Desert Air | Catherine Lauigan

Catherine Lauigan is a multimedia artist based in Los Angeles. She was the creator of the atmospheric soundtrack, Desert Air, which debuted as part of my May 2015 installation and performative event, Tumbleweed Colony at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, NY.  I asked Catherine (Cat) to share some words, terms, visuals linked to what was drifting through her world while creating this soundscape, and she shared the following: 



fissure
stillness
heavy air
undulating
crevices
bend
curve
gradation
loud silence
dry earth



Thank you, Catherine, for being such an inspiring artist to collaborate with.

See you during the next desert hike or urban drift.

The genesis of a flotsam orb | plaited native grass from New Mexico | Abigail Doan (2006)

Tumbleweed Colonyin support of the Textile Arts Center's Sewing Seeds natural dye outreach program, is almost here. Our team of creative contributors and fabricators has been working very hard to explore materials and themes related to bioremediative dye solutions, local color stories, tactile threads, urban air filtering, and wild plant foraging.
