The Data That We Breathe
London-based aritst, writer and performer Caroline Bergvall, writer and code artist Judd Morrissey, and cross-disciplinary writer and scholar Jennifer Scappettone (University of Chicago, Department of English) launch a series of experiments into the physical and poetic dimensions of breath: its channeling in the evolution and performance of human languages, and its molecular migrations through instruments, terrains, and times.
This collaborative performance and installation by recetent Gray Center Mellon Fellows Judd Morrissey, and Jennifer Scappettone, along with Abraham Avnisan, will tap the sprawling veins of urban architecture, mining the material and telecommunications infrastructures within a house, while channeling the histories of its inhabitants and their spectral predecessors.
