This concept is presented through the visual interpretation of a whale, symbolic of an angel descending from the heavens to gather the souls of the deceased and return them to the stars. The souls appear as birds in the artwork(?). The aspect of reassurance in death, through whatever demise meets a soul, results in this calming transition. Theatrical puppetry, combined with film and visual effects, bring this story to life.</span> </p> <p> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> <strong>About the Artists:</strong> </span> </p> <p> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">Katharine Leigh Simpson is a fine arts and installation artist. She creates both two-dimensional and textural works as well as performance pieces to express energy, wave forms, and life's impermanence. Combining organic materials found in nature together with paper and other traditional fine art mediums, Katharine captures this energy and translate it into sculptural expressions. The dualistic qualities of strength and fragility in the materials themselves echo impermanence, while at the same time, allude to their transformative properties.</span> </p> <p> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">Learn more about Katharine Leigh Simpson: </span> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">@katharineleighsimpson </span> <a style="background-color:window;font-size:10pt;" href="file:///one/clk/PERM/ART/Public%20Art%20Program/Current%20Projects/IN%20FLUX%209/Art%20Beats%20Series/triceratops-wisteria-aj8k.squarespace.com" target="_blank">triceratops-wisteria-aj8k.squarespace.com</a> </p> <p> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> <br> </span> </p> <h4>Eternal Home: A Responsive Collaboration Between Art, Dance, and Audience</h4> <p> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">With artists Nicole L.
