Wolf Arias – New York

She Wolves
Tiber to Hudson
he Wolves from Tiber to Hudson was showcased as part of the Festival’s opening ceremonies.  It was projected outdoors at sunset onto the 6m high stone walls of Castle Clinton in New York City’s Battery Park using two simultaneous high resolution projectors. Four digital animations represented the She-Wolf (maternal protector of Romulus and Remus; ancestral guardian of the Hudson) that unites mythologies in Rome and New York.  The animations investigate shadow symbolism in mythology, in this case interpreting wolf mythologies of the Hudson River in New York and the Tiber River in Rome using symbolism of the four elements of nature as historic aspects of ritual cleansing and witnessing.
