Cowboys and Vikings Trilogy
"The Cowboys and Vikings Trilogy is a multimedia performance bringing into question the contemporary reinvention of history. The historical figures of the “Cowboy” and the “Viking” are dissected and repurposed to challenge societal assumptions about contemporary ideas of masculinity."

I was fortunate to join this team of artists for two sections of the work. One part as a second camera at our residency at Ragdale in 2015, and currently as Projection Designer for our outdoor, site-specific performances in South Chicago, by these giant walls left over from the steel industry. Upcoming performances on the September 16th and 17th.
