Detroit Residency

I spent 3 weeks in Detroit in May (2016) at Spread Art. While there I moved in two directions, mostly. The first was that of engaging in acts of exploration – walking, occasionally by bike, later by car and sometimes with people.  This is Spread:

The second direction was towards drawing. I spent my time in my studio working on large drawings and my evenings, when I struggled to sleep, making small doodling and meditative drawings. Here are two examples:

School Of Making Thinking Residency

RE-RE-MAKE: An Immersive Performance Lab

June 16 – July 6, 2015, Roscoe, New York

I created and participated in a number of performances and performance experiments. I am gathering documentation as I go.

Here is the second performance I did as a response to a peer’s first performance at the residency. I wrote and read something I wrote in response to the prior performance and presented an activity to symbolize change and forward motion. People were invited to put on either a wedding dress or a giant blue jumpsuit and dive down a water slide (it was fun).

And, I have a few pictures from the last performance I did.

Story Telling Machine

My story telling was powered by the physical activity of others. It was an experiment and the first enactment of a project I will continue to build on.

I’ll add more as I can.

News!

I am excited to announce that I will be part of a 3 week residency this summer in New York. It is with The School of Making Thinking and will take place mid-June through early July. The residency is on a ten-acre property outside of Roscoe, NY.

I will post more in the future as well as posting some fundraising-related things.

Here is a little info about it:

RE-RE-MAKE: AN IMMERSIVE PERFORMANCE LAB

In this session, we invite artists who want to incorporate performance into their work (whether you consider yourself a performer or not) to undergo an intensive performance lab. Performance in this case is a highly flexible term, brought into the limelight to be stretched, challenged and explored collectively. For example: what are the performativities of sculpture, painting, and other mediums not traditionally viewed in the context of performance?
