What’s Inside Performance by Sam Anthem

March 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

IMSS Multidisciplinary Recovery Series presents the performance by Sam Anthem

What’s Inside Performance by Sam Anthem

What’s Inside is both the result and expression of their recent experiences being medically imaged and looking at those images. Through encounters between moving body, realtime biosonification, and dynamic projections of medical images of that body counterposed onto it, the piece explores the potentials of medical technology to not only objectify and mechanize but also fabulate and expand bodily imaginaries. In response to the themes and materials of the performance, the event will also feature a generative text reading by Claire Lobenfeld and printed matter by Sarah Lutkenhaus.

About the Artist:

Sam Anthem is an interdisciplinary sound, performance, and media artist who seeks to illuminate, turn upside down, and animate socially-embedded and often invisible material relations. Weaving conceptual threads across archives, bodies, species, and social lives, their work addresses power and knowledge systems through sonic and technological encounters.
