The Chorus by Joanna Rogers
February 23 2023 @ 10:00 am - April 20 2023 @ 5:00 pm PST
Joanna Rogers’, The Chorus, consists of a series of weavings, each containing their own Morse code message. The weavings create an abstracted Analytical Engine programmed to transform the past into the present and to translate the future into cryptic Cassandrian prophesies. The weavings—approximately 15 feet in length—hang down like banners or scrolls pooling onto plinths, resembling sunlight streaming through stained glass windows. The summer and winter patterns are made by blocks of contrasting colours, remarkably translating Morse code into a pattern. Within each weaving, the message is repeated as if this repetition might make it clearer. However, most of us cannot decipher Morse code and even if we could, without a cipher to the weavings the messages are lost to us—as will be our endangered species.
