#WORTHCELEBRATING

This Thursday, I am excited to unveil my newest project, WORTH CELEBRATING, which was produced specifically for Flux Factory‘s Spring exhibition, Bionic Gardens. The piece uses strands of flags hung all throughout the exhibition and Flux Factory building to set the stage for a celebration, to announce a party, a victory of things growing newly, changing and unfolding in unforeseen ways.

Within the context of the flags, the mundane becomes fantastic, our small daily victories and triumphs become something worth celebrating.

In that light, I will be doing a performance this THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 7-9PM as part of Flux Thursday, a monthly potluck and showcase event.

As part of the performance I will gather the stories of your recent personal victories, triumphs, accomplishments and celebrations. I will distill them into one word or phrase and then record that phrase onto one of the flags currently hanging at the Flux Factory.

At the conclusion we will have a document of celebration and triumph blowing in the wind.

Please join me this Thursday, June 14, from 7pm – 9pm eastern standard time: in person at Flux Factory (in Queens, NY), or online by tweeting a description of your celebration with the hashtag #WORTHCELEBRATING (you can follow me on twitter here).

I can’t wait to celebrate with you.
