...these borders that keep me down... | MoogFest 2018 at von der Heyden Studio Theater

Exhibitions, Screenings, and Performances

I was the sound artist, technical director and creative consultant for a dance work that explored resonances from redlining to political gerrymandering. I designed custom wearable IoT devices the dancers wore to generate and influence the soundscape with their movements. Full description below: How are neighborhoods designated to separate people? When did the Federal Government actually engage in unfair lending practices in order to keep African Americans out of quality neighborhoods and away from the best resources available to other Americans? SLIPPAGE presents an exploration of redlining, gerrymandering, and asocial cartographies that produce and reinforce inequality. Deploying custom-designed live-feed sonification interfaces, wearable technologies, and AfroFuturist performance practices, this hour-long afrotechnopunk extravaganza brings DUKE faculty, graduate students, community activists, and SLIPPAGE artists together for a special MOOGFEST presentation.
