This experimental collaboration for with Dennis Burke examined both of our interests in public spaces, moving images, and the body. Performance took place in downtown Chicago in late 2013. Documentation and Technical Support: Valentina Vella, Tom Ruiz, Adrienne Ciskey
This technical collaboration with artist and papermaker Alex Borgen, is a 19th century expression of a 21st century technology that is trying to answer an age old question. Who are we? using Cyanotype prints of 3d scans of my face, I extended the idea further by collaborating with Alex in the making of handmade paper emedded with my DNA from strands of hair. URME Blueprint was shown at the Fountains Foundation at 916

Interactive Design with Leo Selvaggio
Watching Brief gives viewers a rare and intimate experience of contemporary dance and visual art. It exposes then excavates physical and mental boundaries, contexts and movement artifacts for an intentionally small gathering of guests.
The episodic evening of movement, conversation and interactive provocation begins with a personal introduction and tour of the space. Perceptions shift as we watch each other navigate. Watching is transformed into moving; we become part of the event. Our actions shape the space and the performances within. The dancers finish to a resting end. There is time to reflect, discuss and enjoy the interactive cloud excavation.
Ka-ter Art is a collaborative effort between artists Scott Dickens and Leo Selvaggio that functions at the cross section of their mutual interest in memory, perception, and the narrative structure. Through sound, installation, and other mediums, Dickens and Selvaggio allow participants to actively build audio narratives through their personal interpretation of the environment. This facilitates the creation of spaces and places that are in constant flux, and are subject to the decisions made by participants. Furthermore, Ka-ter Art attempts to explore the thin veil between individual and collective memory in an effort to explore the boundaries of private and public experience and how the variable and dynamic interpretations of a singular "truth" affect and influence our social interactions.
