〰️ views from somewhere 〰️

.

.

During quarantine, I've been gazing at the city through its public cameras, searching for absence of crowds. It’s an activity that offers some small assurance that people outside of my periphery might be staying safe at home, and the sense that I am there, somehow. .

.

About three years ago I was looking for crowds, in Omnia per Omnia we traced the machinic gaze of the same public cameras as the brush strokes of 20 robotic swarm units. The physical movement of the collective, now dispersed.

.

.

In the past, the movement of my robots were linked to the motion of a crowd, and now the multiple views of the city offering a sense of connection without proximity. These words by Haraway resonating differently — .

.

To explore a "collective subject position that promises a vision of the means of ongoing finite embodiment, of (drawing / making) living within limits and contradictions — of views from somewhere.” .

.

And some closing words about landscape drawing by Berger.

〰️ a vial of invisible ink 〰️

Missing this peaceful moment from my last performance. I like that the image captures the inherent stillness of the process of drawing. Despite uncertainty, the lines are grounding.
.
I'm slowly working on a tele-present version of the performance while sheltering in place during the lockdown and hope to share some of the feeling of this space with you soon ~

〰️ Flora Rearing Agricultural Network 〰️

I've been recording my EEG data while meditating a few times a day in isolation. When I do, I see visions of microbial cells, vertiginous circuits, plants / machines co-naturality. .

Preparation for an upcoming tele-present performance ~

〰️ drawing as co-presence 〰️ .


.
Thinking about starting a drawing live stream from my studio in Brooklyn, a space to draw together as I iterate and experiment with new performance concepts around telepresence and sound meditation.
.
.


How can we create a collective space of exploration, care, and sanctuary without physical proximity? .
