String Figures is an ongoing trans-global art project
by Zoë Mc Pherson (concept, sound)
and Alessandra Leone (visual story, codirection)

An audiovisual album in 7 chapters
merging organic and electronic worlds
folk and the global digital space

A hybrid performance with live electronics
voice, live visuals and choreography


String Figures is inspired by the ancient
and current practice of ‘Cat’s Cradle’
all over the world

Figures as leisure game
medium for storytelling
transmitting
connecting to one another
and spiritual expression

A continuous weaving of Strings
approached with hypnotic sounds
mathematical choreography
subliminal landscapes
and otherworldly journeys

Each chapter explores a symbolic axis
around which liminal transformations occur

From the unknotting of the opening
to the final transmission
the movements of String Figures coil around a sonic memory
