I’M NOT TELLING YOU WHAT TO DO, BUT YOU HAVE TO DO IT, part two
5-month installation at Silent Barn, August 2015-January 2016
Braille lights are projected when you walk up the stairs. The staircase is lined with canvasses of sewed braille that say” I am not telling you what to do but you have to do” which is a line from a narration by someone I met in Nicaragua. As you walk up the stairs, you activate the entire narrative, which discusses the role of American imperialism as creator of Central American poverty.
” I am not telling you what to do but you have to do”. Hand sewn canvass of this narration.

1. January 2018 Interactive visuals with pianist Hitomi Honda at the New York University PhD Waverly Labs for Music and Computing for AV showcase. Un-rehearsed improvisation with only the theme of allowing for mistakes (as in the title) and the non-stop mistakes of humanity. To explore the theme of ethnography, I show hand made drawings and Arabic refugee poetry, as well as a video of a starling murmuration.
