rachel davisRachel Davis with FRAME

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” Marcus Garvey

The mission of FRAME is to create, articulate and preserve the cultural moments that frame our lives. We all have culture and live within culture, but, as Garvey suggests, we don’t all know it or appreciate it.

FRAME is a project that uses movement to bring knowledge unexpectedly to a broad and unsegregated audience.

When I make a frame, I’m not only considering the movement of my own body, I’m showcasing the movements of other people in the frames, other sounds which is movement of air, and even more abstractly the EMOTIONAL movement of the viewer. Some FRAMES, like culture, have explanations that are important, such as a descriptive poem or story, others do not. They exist purely for their own sake and are meant to be taken as they come. Art for art’s sake.
