Previz #67 – Charlotte, Forever

As much as I love Marina Abramovic, Charlotte Moorman holds a special place in my heart. She did, after all, inspire me to pick up the cello at the tender age of 5 – yes, my mother is a total hippie lol. My first cello recital, to the dismay of my classmates and kindergarten teacher, […]

Previz #65 – Close Encounters

NEW YORK – CHICAGO – SAN FRANCISCO – ACROSS ANY TABLE, 25 April — If art and life are tapestries, richly woven matrices of people and experiences, then from what far-flung sources come the fibers of these weavings? Is a monochrome better than a cacophony? Is the richness of our art, our lives, our culture, […]

VB35 – Like A Prayer

NEW YORK CITY, 17 March — In the roller coaster of life, soaring ascents are often followed by plunging descents, and so it was today for Vaneeesa Blaylock whose bombastic performance last week of Net / Work was today counterpointed by a simple act of contrition, a day of silent meditation in hopes of making […]

Previz #63 – Strange Zeitgeists

SAN FRANCISCO, 11 April — In this Previz we imagine multiverse traveler Ironyca along with performance / new media artists / hacktivists Eva & Franco Mattes wearing lycra unitards or latex catsuits.
