Natural dyeing processes and text scores are ways to participate with the seasons. Dyeing fabric using plant material and an open fire and happens in muhlu (cool time). Solar dyeing and sewing with the fabric and thread dyed in muhlu becomes the focus in garrwarn (hot time). Text scores are created to guide creative practice within climatic conditions.
Through the score the experience is repeated and moves from memory to the realm of instruction or storytelling. This is an installation that grows with the seasons.
