IJAD Dance – Signed, Sealed, and er, Framed

I was very very lucky this year to get to do some interactive work with an incredible dance company, IJAD dance. The project was to be observing and responding to an inside look at one of their performances, which fused social media with arabic dance and examined the idea of a work having an infinite reach.

It ended up being a project opened some creative doors in my mind, and led to me experimenting with some subject matter and styles that I was not overly familiar with. You can see some of the sketches and designs that came out of the initial sessions here.

They are now having a fundraising auction, and it turned out to be another opportunity for me to have a look at the work I did, and to see if I could come up with some complete works to auction/use as prizes. Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s some of the original sketches:
