Finally posted “documentation” of the performance I did at the High Museum of Art last November 2012. Documentation in this case consists of a score and a low-quality image. Visit the page under the Projects tab, or, simply, click here.
I just uploaded video and photographs from my recent performance with Justin Andrews, towards the side exposed to wind i place a hawk, that took place at The Goat Farm Arts Center in conjunction with Deke Weaver‘s Other Animals. To check it out, click here.
I recently started writing for the arts blog Bad at Sports that’s based in Chicago. My first article, “Watching Touch,” looks at the Atlanta-based Full Radius Dance, which is a physically-integrated dance company, meaning the dancers have a range of abilities. This article coincides with my more recent growing commitment to dance and movement-based performance work. These interests have created profound shifts in my dissertation work – it’s looking different every single week…
A few end of the year updates…
Here is the link to the interview with me on BURNAWAY about the paper I gave at its End of Days Secret Supper this past November. Paper title: “The Zombie: A Post-Human, Becoming-Undead Flâneur?” Here’s an image from the spooky dinner in Oakland Cemetary!
Also, the essay I wrote a couple of years ago “Pictures of Health, Pictures of Illness” about the Visible Human Project and British photographer Jo Spence has finally been published! It’s in the volume Theorizing Visual Studies: Writing Through the Discipline (Routledge, 2012) edited by James Elkins, Kristi McGuire, Maureen Burns, Alicia Chester, and Joel Kuennen. The collection brings together over sixty essays that invoke images to summon, interpret, and argue with visual studies and its neighboring fields such as art history, media studies, visual anthropology, critical theory, cultural studies, and aesthetics.
I’m still waiting on images from my performance at the High, new descendent on escaleer, no, too, so hopefully I will be posting those soon.
Also, a poem of mine, r = 1, was published in Ctrl+P, an online arts journal this past September in Vol. 17. Check it out!
Happy New Year’s! On to 2013…
A couple updates and more to follow after said events:
1. I will be giving a paper tomorrow morning (November 9th) at the annual National Women’s Studies Association Conference in Oakland, CA titled “Misrecognized Immunity: Gertrude Stein’s Portraits and an Autoimmune Aesthetic” on the panel “Decolonizing Vision: Reading Visual Culture Through a Feminist Lens.”
2. I will also be performing with the Atlanta group OMIGOD HELLO HOW ARE YOU this Saturday (November 10) at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art for its College Night. The performances accompany the current special exhibition Fast Forward: Modern Moments 1913>>2013. My performance title: new descendent on escaleer, no, too.
