The Color of Then
A durational performance installation
Conceived & Designed by
The Color of Then is a durational performance installation examining the lasting effects of trauma on the body over time. In this deeply personal work, a single performer (Brenna Fredrickson) is alone in a space with a slowly melting ice sculpture, forced to confront the inevitable exposure of memory through the body.
During the performance, audience were welcome to come and go as they pleased and encouraged to see the installation at different phases during the day. As the ice sculpture melted, polaroid images were revealed and pockets of dye were released throughout the ice. As these elements dropped to the floor, the actor responded accordingly through movement.
