the body poetik gives academic, artistic, and bodywork presentations at the University of Arizona, Tucson
Not only did I get to present an academic talk at the University of Arizona, during my time at the Open Embodiments Conference, and to present poetry-of-the-body with my dear San Francisco collaborators --I also got to do an interactive art installation in a downtown gallery. The organizers set me up with a double bed in the middle of sculptures and paintings and acrobats. I invited gallery visitors to step into engaged arts experiments around intimacy and body image. Here were some of the options I offered for engagement.
