[Music X Habitat X Art]: Scott Sherman, Zhongjing Amelie Jiang e Yaoyue Huang – Matchsticks: Crosses of Blood 3’30” – United States
MATCHSTICKS, 3’30” comprises of four vignettes with the cross as a reoccurring archetypal symbol throughout, signifying the tree of life and nourishment; a symbol of the universal archetypal human, capable of harmony, opposing the destruction of equality by l’homme moderne. The use of de-familiarization of archetypal imagery is essential to the work.
