Eric Lindley of Careful will play a drone version of “Froggy Goes A-Courting (King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki-Me-O)” as I perform a butoh style dance as the space gorilla Ro-Man, exploring transcendence and cross-species love. Colored ice will also melt.

March 11 – April 15th
Monotonic Surfaces: An Account of the Arctic Regions, 
a video and sound art installation at The Center for Strategic Art and Agriculture
The Center for Strategic Art and  Agriculture at The Silent Barn, 603 Bushwick Ave., Brooklyn, New York 11206
Created while part of of the expeditionary residency The Arctic Circle  sailing around the Arctic archipelago Svalbard, the videos of Monotonic Surfaces convey the power and vulnerability of the Arctic landscape and emphasize the ecstatic and transformative potential of the environment.

Each of the videos were made in collaboration with musicians and sound artists whose works I brought on the expedition, broadcast and re-recorded on site. The sounds, melodies and tones of each auditory work influenced my videographic choices, both in terms of subject and treatment. Collaborators include Steve Anderson, Stephanie Richards, Tunde Adebimpe, Sandy Gordon, Eric Lindley, Chris Colthart, Todd Carter and Guru Rugu.

Monotonic Surfaces opens Tuesday, March 11, 2014, 6 – 9pm
