Kantate creates a spatial music to celebrate the timeless beauty of the lace in its birth place.


The crocheted surface of ARIZONA! was invited to transform;  the fluidity of the field, magnanimity of the trees and tranquility of the castle of the site inspired the elegant and quieting form that moves the viewers to listen to the poetry of the surrounding nature.
