Afloat centers around a cube. During the performance, I gradually reveal and interact with three architectural garments sewn onto the cube. The first garment is body-sized-shoes, I flip through fabric pages with. The second garment is a staircase I lie underneath producing sounds with a ceramics miniature vessel. The third garment is two layers of quilt with ceramics sound making miniature vessels sewn onto four gloves.
