Entanglement: A Love Story is a Visual Conceptual Sonata with a 5-part sequence: Threshold (prelude), Shells and Pearls (exposition), Archives and Bones (development), Nomad in Exile (recapitulation), and Anatomy of the Atmosphere: Portraits of The Code (coda). There are two keys or “characters”: (1) Via Postel, also known as Love and the essence of Non-Being; (2) The Wanderer, also known as Nothing: A Nomad in Exile, and the essence of Being.
A Sonata is a long piece of classical music made up of several parts. Sonata means to be “sounded” or “played”. It has 3 movements of contrasting forms: Exposition, Development, Recapitulation. It can also have an introduction such as a Prelude. It often has a Coda at the end. During the Exposition movement, themes are identified; it has 2 sections, the first being the main key and the second being the dominant. The Development movement explores, dramatizes, deepens the themes. Recapitulation is a varied repetition of the Exposition. The most important difference is that the dominant second section becomes the main key. The texture and tone reverse themselves. The Coda is a closing section that wraps up the ideas and reaffirms the strength of intention. It is the “tail” and can go on, leading to a longer story or it can be short to create a solid ending.
A musical sonata is communicated through the vibration of sound. Entanglement: A Love Story is expressed through the vibration of light, and the echoes and reflections of motion. The ancient methods used during creation with fresco mediums produce a living product; eternally, intimately interacting with light.
