DANIELLE GARRISON | Ethered and Tethered: a liminal space

Locating the body suspended between physical and virtual “materialities”: An aerial-hammock installation to imprint, transform, relocate, translate, and re-present movement responses between human and (in)human bodies; producing a geo/local and multitemporal tactility collection of synthetic touches.

HOLLY TIMPENER | Queer Epicenter Transformations

I am investigating internal transformations in durational performance art and its relationship to non-binary and transgender identities. I believe it is within the embodiment of affectual transformation that queer resistance is created through performative action.



JUANITA MARCHAND | Vocal Timbre and Perception

What assumptions do we make about people based on their voices? Through historically informed exploration of vocal production, scientific research about timbre perception, new music creation, and creative experimentation we can make space for trans, BIPOC, and disabled folx in classical singing.



JOE THIBODEAU | Selfhood and Sensation

I research the sense-of-self as a medium for understanding our connections with nonhumans and the environment.



NIK FORREST | From Experimental to Ecological

Sound as an ecological medium defies normative boundaries between self/ other/ environment as well as oppositional binary categories (inside/outside, natural /unnatural): it suits the social challenges of our current moment, including questions of gender + sexuality.

XDZUNÚM DANAE TREJO-BOLES | the rod | la vara

A series of variations (physical explorations) between the human body and the rod; rods as measures of space, extensions of the body, weaponry, points of balance, paddles, propulsors, writing tools, etc., but also in the transformations they create in individual(s). What effect do external elements have on our physical and cognitive patterns?

The aim is towards pragmatic representations of identity politics, via a personal subjectivity which intersects with Black and queer lenses.
