the story behind the 'Magical Transformation Cloak' created for 'Sonic Blossom' at the Met Museum...Part 1
When artist/collaborator, and friend, Lee Mingwei explained the concept of 'Sonic Blossom' as a singer performing opera to visitors as a gift, I imagined a cloak that would transform the wearer into a magical being, able to give music as a gift, in a unique way.
The most important task would be to endow the design with the power of transfiguration. There needed to be a metamorphosis of the textiles into a 'Magical Transformation Cloak', that would bestow the wearer with otherworldly powers.
Today is the last day of 'Sonic Blossom' at the Met Museum. More photos and details coming soon on the creation of the cloak
