Conscious Inclusion: Dr. Mae Jemison Highlights the Complexity of Science, Race and Power
Keywords: Race, Gender, Performance, Electronic Music, Experimentalism
Psychological, glimmering, translucent, semiliquid, luminous, droning, ominous, distant, hypnagogic -- all point towards an idea that hints beyond reach, beyond containment, and beyond perceived function. Park will discuss and demonstrate her creative work as experimental and emergent embodiment, a sub/conscious self-shaping from daily racial and feminist experience and questioning in order to reclaim and redefine what it means to be human.
