across*dove, 2010 + Messiaen:Preludes No.1 - La Colombe (The Dove), 1928

The pianist is sitting at the keyboard, practicing, thinking, imaging the color of music painted through the ears of that great composer. Her mind can't help recalling the interpretation from one of the finest masters. These three figures come across a short moment through the designer who captures its evanescent impression via the media of the time. Thus, the pianist, the composer, the old master, the designer and the media collide their aura onto a magic dove flying across time and space, memorizing the past and preluding the future.
