The history of the clay dictated the collection’s name and style. All of the material used in hips comes from a previous performance installation called “Aftershock: Sampling Impact. The piece consisted of Kelli, a choreographer, an ensemble of dancers, a sound artist and a dramaturg using the clay as a surface to imprint and record their bodies as they performed the dance.
