New Work: Muscle Memory

"Muscle Memory" is based on the concept of learned movements and patterns that become "hardwired" in our brains.
Athletes, dancers and musicians have this ability due to years of practice and repetition. Even if they are away from their sport or craft for years, they can pick it right back up and play. Their bodies seem to move automatically; they know what to do without consciously thinking.
Inspired by a photo by my good friend, photographer Joe Putrock.
The hands are jazz pianist Lee Shaw's.
