score when bashful hands assume silence beyond pink hollyhock existence sara stevanovic

a close-up can be defined as a reflecting surface that gathers or expresses all kinds of intensive micro-movements. Each time we discover these two poles in something we can say that this thing has been “faceified” and in turn it stares at us, it looks at us: it is a reflecting and reflected unit. In this sense, the process of faceification permits a further investigation of an object, its origins and its parts as well as a deeper analysis of the observer and of what is being reflected. The piece puts the composer in close-up while observing her through the eyes of a pink hollyhock (known as a symbol of the circle of life, ambition, prosperity) existence.
