Join haberstroh and a group of performers in this live performance as they explore bot, puppet, and shadow accounts by activating their piece You took my impression without ever touching me. haberstroh explores the impersonal gathering of facial impressions into databases used for things such as profiling and surveillance.
Sawyer’s work, which he calls “skins” are wearable works of art that represent our connection to our bodies, identity, and the space we occupy. His performance will take a closer look at the restrictions and limitations we encounter as individuals through an interpretative movement performance.

This event is free and open to the public and will take place during our regular open hours.
