boundarymind - Spring 2021

 Although the pandemic has postponed for what's looking like it will be two years, my collaborative project "boundarymind" with Linda Jankowska, we have found some ways to share portions of the work this spring.

March 3-6 - Work-in-Progress Installation at RomanSusan in Chicago, IL

Kera MacKenzie (video), Molly Roth Scranton (sculture), LJ and I (music) install a storefront window and gallery version of the third "movement" of boundarymind at this Chicago Gallery.

March 8 - Live broadcast on WGXC 90.7 FM as part of "Moves on the Radio" series

April 24 - Premiere of Movement 3 Video and Stereo Audio piece at SEAMUS

As part of the 2021 SEAMUS virtual conference, we will premiere the third movement with stereo audio composed by LJ and KY and video by KM.
