In the interactive intermediate performance, the cloak is a metaphor for clothing as a second skin that separates us and at the same time protects us from the effects of the sun, which is the largest natural generator of electromagnetic (EM) radiation. The process of artistic exploration of EM radiation was provoked by association with a person who, due to his health situation, often visits physiotherapy.

The central element of the performance is an e-textile cloak that surrounds the body of the performer. This acts as a receiver of waves from EM sources, further translating them into the range of human auditory and visual perception. Natural and artificial EM waves are at work in the performance, which are transformed into a new holistic creation by harmonizing sound and image. The event involves the active participation of the audience.

The performance is at the same time a tribute to the Sun. It is approaching the peak of the eleven-year cycle of EM activity, in which the solar poles change and that is when the Sun has the greatest influence on our planet.

Adriane Colburn is an artist based in Jersey City, New Jersey, and in Vermont. Her early works reflect a passion for mapping, abstract compositions, and visualizing systems that cannot otherwise be seen as a whole. In her recent works, this passion remains present but is intertwined with a long-standing commitment to materiality and the natural world, a fascination with global systems, history, and a deep interest in climate change. Reading, delving into archives, collaborating with scientists, and gaining experiential knowledge through field research form the foundation of her artistic practice.
