Super excited that Elaine and I will be collaborating on the creation of BRING ON THE LUMIERE. The project will be a combination of my performance work with her amazingly cool light installation and video. We are going to conquer space and light together. I am a huge fan of Elaine’s work and so excited to be working with her.
Here are some my favorites pieces from her website: http://nighthouse.withtank.com/
