What is Home an Obscure Kingdom an Opera Buffa It's You Always You is an assemblage series. And what is assemblage exactly? The term is generally applied to sculpture made with found objects--think of Joseph Cornell's shadow boxes or Rauschenberg's Odalisk--that project from a defined substrate. The objects projecting out from What is Home consist of dance films, photography, performance, and installation. Welcome Home, the most recent object filmed over this last weekend, is a dance film that is itself an assemblage of dance, film, opera, and poetry!

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Let those you love who may be struggling know that it's okay to struggle. Being acknowledged is sometimes the biggest gift you can give someone in their suffering.
