2005. Although I had worked with media before, I first began deeply integrating media on DISPOSABLE MEN, a solo work by James Scruggs about the representation of African-American men in our culture. We used original, found, and live feed video projected onto cylindrical, fabric and flat screens as well as projecting onto the performer’s body. It was really exciting to uncover how much we could amplify our message by mixing image and performance together. Even more exciting was examining my own perspective as a white woman by this piece dealing with tensions between black men and white women.
