Emerging from the Water: Asigi’idiwag (Gather)

In this microscopic universe, shorelines vibrate with other-than-human potencies. From undulating broken shimmers, song, and rhythm, we emerge and cross over to an electrifying embrace. This projection dome and Virtual Reality experience, by Dolleen Tisawii’ashii Manning and Mary Bunch, features planetary portals to stories by Lisa Meyers, Mariel Belanger, Hodari Newtown, Lydia Johnson, and others. Programmed by Peripheral Visions Co-Lab.
