11. ULYSSES ATWHEN
The Erie Canal is re-imagined as a contemporary cultural space for performance and dialogue in a project and performance that seeks to create community and cultural connections across the Empire State (NY) beginning with Buffalo to Medina. Interior and exterior spaces are connected through live audio/video feeds and audience engagement between an outdoor boat sculpture and the installation inside the school.
