Ritmo Studio is a nomadic shop that produces workshops and designs on fabric.

Methodology

At the Ritmo Workshop, participants gather to create tapestries collectively by impressing linocut images onto fabric through pressure applied by the movement of the human body, as well as the power of dance set to music.

Each participant takes home a tapestry made from linoleum blocks engraved with Ariel Foster's designs. The work in play at Ritmo was developed through the span of multiple conversations Foster held with various people about the ways that they understand their unique national identities, and the values specific to their native cultures.

These conversations are treads that make up the cultural fabric in a globalized world of transnational identities.
