Studio Progress + Marina Rosenfeld - July 3, 2018

Still layering. Going to turn the canvas clockwise again before my studio visit with Hamza Walker tomorrow. 

Interesting talk from the sound artist Marina Rosenfeld this evening, founder of the Sheer Frost Orchestra among other things (I've linked to a video of her recent installation "Deathstar" below), following a discussion about colonialization and creolization in Nathaneal's class -- texts were A Tempest by Aimé Césaire, The Tempest by Shakespeare, "Fragment of a Voyage to New Orleans" by Elisee Reclus (I LOVE Reclus!), "Creolization in the Making of the Americas" by Edouard Glissant, and poems by Frederique Guetat-Livani, translated by Nathaneal.
