GingerBreadBleach

On December 16, 2017 Ike Sugar and I put together an event for St. Lucia's Day, a scandinavian holiday celebrating the return of light. I put together a workshop on how to make gingerbread houses, and Sugar taught classes on how to bleach natural fibers over a fire using, netting, lace, and paint brushes.

NutcrackerShadow

Charles Joseph Smith and I collaborated on a performance to 'Pas de duex' from the Nutcracker for the opening of Robin Hustle's SLIT WAVE SHEATH HEARTH
at Kim's Corner Foods.

picture of nutcrackerShadow performace

Some sketches while we brainstormed our performance:


livingRoom

I was asked by Martha Bayne and Andrea Jablonski to make an installation for
A Memory Palace of fear, a haunted house about housing put together by Theater Oobleck. I based this installation off of the Hans Christian Anderson story The Little Match Girl. Patrons would walk down a hallway and peer through different windows at holiday scenes. At the end of the hallway they would end up in a living room where I provided mixtapes, and food that reminded people of home, drawing materials, paper, and the history of the top 10 most common houses in Chicago and prompted people to draw what home means to them. A Memory Palace of Fear took place from October 19 - October 31, 2017.

Feline Cooks

Alicia Obermeyer and I put together a skit for Casual Agony, a comedy/variety hour at Café Mustache put together by Ed Rivera, and Sarah. We played versions of Martha Stewart and Dolly Parton, while talking about how to cook a cat. We then had an audience member play bozo buckets, and if they missed the bucket- they got slimed. They missed the bucket. The performance took place August 11, 2017.

Douglas Park Time Observation Club

In the summer of 2017 Rebecca Wolfram and I started the Douglas Park Time Observation Club. A group that meets and observes time in whichever way they choose. Most draw, or take pictures. Others have written, and sang songs. We meet at least once a month in the warmer months. My objective is to document the people, objects, landscape, and gentrification happening around the park.
We had a table at the North Lawndale Art Fest in 2017 and drew people's portraits and entered them into our time observation documents

Music House School of Performing Arts

I am a teaching artist for The Music House School of Performing Arts. I typically help with the set, costumes, and props for their theater productions. I've also edited video, and put together multimedia presentations for the students. Here are some examples of the work I've done for them:


Backdrop for their production of the Lion King

picture of nutcrackerShadow performace
picture of nutcrackerShadow performace

Backdrops for a play about the Harlem Renaissance performed by Chicago Public School Students at Cook Elementary.


Multi-media presentations for Telling Stories Through Hip Hop Theatre, a program where students write and record their own hip hop tracks and perform them for their parents and peers in 2017. I helped the students formulate and animate their ideas for the performances. Below is an example of one of the animations I put together based on the students ideas, and a short commercial showing snipets of their performances. To see the full performance you can go here. Or to watch more of just the animations I put together go here.




I designed the curriculum, and taught the kids at Dvorak Elementary costume and set design for their production of The Jungle Book. in 2016.

Jobholder: Art by People in the Service Industry

I curated a group show in May 2016 that featured work by people who work in the service industry. The service industry employs 80% of the Amercian workforce,
in contrast the artworld employs roughly 1.9%.

What does it mean when a country is run by those who serve others? What does life look like through the eyes of those who serve for a living? What will it mean when automation starts to take over these jobs? The Egg will be examining this and more through the art and words of people in the service industry.

For this show, I put together art from people who consider themselves artists, and some who do not. There was a microphone handy for anyone who wanted to give their 2 cents. The art was priced so that service industry employees could afford it.

The closing event featured a yard sale with goods from the artists, and a performance by Cavenaw and Cavenis

The facebook event for the show is here.
For more information and pictures, you can view the photo album here.
Interviews with some of the artists are here.







PeepShow

Created a PeepShow for InHabit's Sex Habits.
Citizens would enter a dark booth and were prompted to pay $1 for 1 minute. There were headphones with Linda Scott's I've Told Every Little Star playing on repeat. Once the dollar was inserted into the slot, I would open the hatch and perform a "show".

Confession Booth

In 2015 I made a confession booth for Fermentation Fest's farm/Art DTour during my residency at the Wormfarm Insititute.
The Farm/Art DTour is a 50+ mile long scenic ride through the driftless region of Wisconsin. Fest goers make stops at different art installations using the land as inspiration.
The confession booth was about a half a mile walk inside of an abandoned apple orchard in North Freedom, WI. Patrons would make park their cars or bikes along the road and make their way to the confession booth where they would find instructions telling them to confess, and in return they would receive their portrait. They could not see me, and I would not speak- but I would draw as they confessed.
Over 200 people confessed during the week of fermentation fest.

Chicago Tribune feature

StreetScene

A collab play by Clayton Bond and myself (aka MORTVILLE). We put this together for cake bake, a fundraiser for CAKE when our friend Max Morris was putting the show together. It was performed on April 25, 2015 at NO NATION
the idea was to create a moment on a street block- inspired by Do the Right Thing and A Bronx Tale.

The pictures show the 'set', and the video gives you more of an idea of the performance aspect of it- even though it's dark and you can't really hear...either way just check it out.

A shack based on the one from Charlie Chaplin's The Gold Rush for
the Black and White show put together by Nick Fisher on January 16, 2015

I dressed like Steve Jobs and read inspirational quotes by dictators and attributed them to Steve Jobs. Each board was hand painted with a fake woodgrain tool. I also served cake with the front page of the Chicago Tribune from the day that the art show was, ing the year The Gold Rush was made.
And a black leather shoe cake.

MORTVILLE

MORTVILLE was the top floor of a warehouse that Clayton Bond and myself lived, curated, and ran from 2008 - 2013. We would come up with themes, and then build huge sets in our 1700+ sq foot space where bands and performances would take place.
Below is some of the documentation of the sets we built on a $0 budget.

Events in History

Events in History was up from May 13, 2011 to late June 2011. The idea was to build sets based off of "historical events".
There was a dinosaur area, medieval torture chamber, Gone with the Wind Price is Right showcase, Mount Rushmore, History of Mortville wheatpaste, Manson Murders, the Birth of Jesus, Richard Speck arrest site, Elvis, and the moon landing.
I personally built the Gone with the Wind Price is Right showcase, and Mount Rushmore.

Neverending Candyman

Neverending Candyman was inspired by the movies Neverending Story, and Candyman.
This set up was up for one night only, and the documentation is not so great- to pretty much non existant. For this set we painted a mural of candyman's hook on our ceiling, a gigantic couch/Falkor, a cave, mirror gate where you see your "true" self (I put Oprah as the reflection), and the candyman mural where you walk through the mouth.

Apocolypse

The apocolypse set opened November 5, 2009 and was basically taking the previous set (a street-scape) and making it look like the world had ended. I re-created the room from Goodnight, Moon, and turned the "motel" into a black hole, leading into a weird cult. A women with a watermelon stomache, among many other things.

Street Scene

We wanted to have a set that showcased the flyers of , and I came up with the idea that we build a street scene to paste the flyers on. I built the motel, the $5 store, and white widow lounge. Clayton built the video rental store and pharmacy.
