Subjective Timbre is an exhibition of works based on the color dualities of Johannes Itten’s theory of color. Using naturally derived and synthetic dye processes, Miller will employ fiber and sculpture to explore an individual’s preferred color combinations. This exhibition will also present a movement based performance influenced by Itten’s core belief system of the Mazdaznan Health & Breath Culture. Itten taught a group of stretching and posing exercises to his students on the roof of Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany from 1919 to 1923 called The Egyptian Postures, movements that are claimed to be descended directly from the Pharaohs.
