SEE / LIFE ART & INSTALLATION
THE MULTIPLICITY OF YOU
You have power.
But it can be easy to lose sight of that sometimes.
The weight of the world on our shoulders
Breathe, hum, crawl.
Twist, scratch, scream.
Abandon perfection. Let’s get messy.
Our bodies are made of flesh, bones, skin and pixels.
Come shapeshift with me.
A live projection installation-Happening determined by your body and your movements. With poetry and spoken word, music, and nonsense. An invitation to shapeshift and create worlds individually and collectively.
