sound blankets

My grandmother made this blanket.
My mother left me these voicemails. 

Video ID: Sound Blankets is a video of Shannon dancing with a blanket her grandmother crocheted.. The camera is at a bird's eye view. A green screen effect takes out the floor and Shannon's body leaving black, digital gaps from the stitches and Shannon's movement - flickering in and out of view. The blanket has loose stitches,, thick, with alternating stripes of creamy orange and tan.. There is a large hole in the blanket. Shannon slowly emerges, connectes, mingles, and tangles herself within the blanket as voicemails from her mother play and replay at different volume levels. The camera moves in and out of specific parts of the frame - sometimes following Shannon's movement, sometimes not.
