WhenThursday, Apr. 25, 2019, 6 – 7:30 p.m.
Description

This artist's talk will navigate the emerging territories and queer liminalities of a poetic practice that integrates text, code, bodies, and technologies that capture and transform space. The presentation will culminate in a short performance of inside My Gorge, an immersive augmented reality poem and performance by Morrissey and collaborator Abraham Avnisan.
