A Study in Rhyme & Song surveys the performance of identity as a form of social terrorism through the lens of children's rhymes and songs. The sound installation offers a critical perspective on notions of progress, of living in a post-racial nation, and of identity-based politics. A Study in Rhyme & Song features a series of works, including Easy Listening, Ten Little Indians, and Then There Was None.
A Study in Rhyme & Song: Then There Were None
A Study in Rhyme & Song: Ten Little Indians
Thanks to the generous support of the 3Arts Artist Projects Grant and sponsors, I will be creating a mobile sound system to tour the performance throughout Chicago in 2017!
