Studio for Interrelated Media BIG Show, MassArt
Boston, MA, 2015
Holidays, performed as part of the 2015 MassArt SIM BIG Show, combined tracing paper, tulle, paper cranes, two projectors, and a performance of one of my original compositions, Come Home.
Set in the middle of a large auditorium, with audience members cross-legged on all sides of me, the mixed media performance set the stage for a meditation on the idea of home. Illuminated onto the front of my tulle "nest," a projection of my dad's spaghetti sauce recipe played on repeat. On my back, animations of family photographs looped, unfolding and refolding. These visual personal artifacts, paired with a musical performance, aimed to illustrate my experience of home while raising questions about how I fit into my own familial web.
