Somatic Pause by David DiMarchi

November – March 2022 

Fashioned after both the artist’s workspace and print editions he created during his residency, Somatic Pause invites Princeton to contemplate the transformational power of rest and how time changes each of us.

Somatic Pause – a wheat-pasted, painted, and collaged installation – is an ephemeral one. Meant to change over time, the mural was exposed to harsh winter weather, early spring rains, and glaring sun, each doing its own work to fade, soften, tear and mar its surface. Change is the constant.
