w/ Spirits Having Fun
This site-inspired performance will draw on my interest in the interaction between human infrastructure and natural spaces. Specifically, here, I will utilize the claustrophobic environment of a concrete tunnel to offer an aural meditation on the violence and suppression embodied in and signified by infrastructure projects such as highways and dams.

Rock Shop of the Anthropocene is a recommissioned exhibition displayed previously at The Comfort Station in Chicago. This piece will be shown in Science Hall from November 11th- December 20th. This exhibit explores the geologic detritus of the Anthropocene; a space to explore collection, commodification, and the contemporary geologic condition.
Please join us for the unveiling of this work, a brief artist talk, and snacks and refreshments.
