The Green Room I, The Green Room II Extreme bodily postures recall Fifteenth Century paintings depicting the “extraction of the stone of madness,” a hypothetical procedure involving trepanation and the removal of a stone thought to be the cause or seed of a patient’s insanity. This lone figure could otherwise be a sort of Artaud

The word “run” apparently has 645 meanings, a rapid accumulation over the last 100 years or so. There’s a New York Times article you can read, also an accompanying NPR special dedicated to this simple, small word.

Provoking the limits of a form, contort or melt to move through. A patch of undead chia, a feigned arability, retreating from or pushing into life. Distant landscapes point at

Hello People. Recordings of sustained trumpet tones reverberate the walls. A mechanical object, made up of valves, tubes and horns, merges two existences’. Engines powered by human breath. The emission of the most pure tones are corrupted by inherent human irregularity. Hello people are benign ghosts. Unwilling to conform to the policies of utter chaos
