A collection of creative works focused on time and memory; collectively the human experience stemming from Africa.
About the Collection
Studio Enertia artists Lisa E. Harris (Houston) and Alisha B. Wormsley (Pittsburgh) create works focused on Time and Memory; collectively the human experience stemming from Africa. The beginning. Everything past present and future all happening simultaneously. A kind of Ancient Futurism. The artists will screen various excerpts from their collaborative film and video works and discuss how community participation informs their creative process of designing interactive and reflexive public performances and public social sculptures.
