pieces collectively created and performed by:
Christopher M. Lavery
Nearly all the works in this exhibition/performance were created collaboratively by the faculty (and associates) in the Department of Sound, Performance, and Visual Inquiry. Each member of the collective initiated a work of any kind—image, video, sculpture, poem, musical piece, dramatic monologue, etc.—and passed it to the next person, who added, altered, or otherwise responded to what he or she received. The new piece was then passed further along the line, the goal being that everyone would eventually make a contribution to each work. The process ended up much less predictable and systematic than that, but the results were surprising and revealing.
