An Evening of Performance and Readings
What is the dream-life of digital words as they lay flat on a screen, quietly acquiescing? Can they be satisfied with the momentary puffs of arranged air or do they want something thicker, heavier? Do words dream about becoming sheafs of blank paper or a screen marked only by a blinking cursor? Or do they just want a body of their own? Do they want your body?
Join Wendy S. Walters, Joseph Whitt and Joon Oluchi Lee + Roddy Schrock for an evening of performance and readings exploring the dream-life of words and their electronic lives.
