Don shaped the music and Moki the surrounding environment with clothing, portable fabric applications, posters, cover art and more. Together they created an organic whole in which life was included as a given part.
“Finding a way to investigate whether life and living itself is art by living it as a creative process”. This is roughly how Moki Cherry formulated the starting point for her and Don Cherry’s artistic collaboration. As early as the summer of 1971, this was manifested by the fact that they were exhibited in practice as a “musical-aesthetic situation” during the exhibition “Utopias and visions 1871 – 1981″ at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
