By night Rideal’s film was projected out of the the twin gallery stairwells and their linking windows illumined by LEDs performing in synchronous colours to the film. By day, within the galleries, Drop Sari was projected onto white saris blown around by a fake fanned breeze.

Both installations were part of the Cotton Global Threads, 11 February – 13 May, 2012.
