The Female Power of Carolee Schneemann | The Current | The Criterion Collection

The Junicho Video – Renku Book, 2015

Similar to an exquisite corpse, renku is composed as a counter-narrative according to a complex set of rules based on the structural devices of “link and shift”.

hinge (不思議)– friends of the pleistocene



. . . standing in the path of totality of a total solar eclipse. . . . We recall the elusive
shadow bands we glimpsed racing across the grass at our feet, seconds before the bright world around us tipped into deep twilight. . . the diffused filtering of the extreme Southern Illinois heat, humidity and light that occurred over 20 minutes leading up to totality. How strange and silvery our skin looked in those minutes. Instinctual awe kicked in as we got our first direct and bizarre glimpse of the force that fuels all life on Earth. – fop
