The public is invited to share, listen, and engage in a hands-on, low tech, high energy multimedia performance taking place on the lawn and exterior wall of GPS. Together, using the wall, overhead projectors, fragmented text, and paper silhouettes, we will ignite visual conversation. Topics include, but are not limited to, resistance and persistence when facing oppression. Poems and short stories will be read and their words will literally be placed in the hands of the community, to be visually rearranged and projected onto the wall in combination with hand-cut silhouettes by Jaclyn Bowie. The images and words may support each other, or complicate each other. You, the community, are the directors and this is your project!
