MAYA HAWKE X GRIMANESA AMORÓS
Tatijana Shoan July 21 2022
Hollywood’s newest ingénue, actor-singer-songwriter MayaHawke, interdisciplinary artist Grimanesa Amorós, and photographer TatijanaShoan collaborate for our light-inspired coverfeature. Andlight, as a metaphor, is a theme that plays throughout Hawke’s latest album, Moss.
The album, as she explains in ourinterview, addresses the inner light in all of us so joining ourcollaborationwas kismet as light is Amorós’ main medium. Amorós harnesses light into LED tubing structures and organic forms that she controls through a computer system that allows her to choreograph light in various colors and hues. She compares programming her lighting sequences to composing a piece of music, every note has its moment in time and space. For our photo shoot, Amorós created sculptures by enveloping Hawke in her custom-built tubing structures while Shoan photographed her.
