About this Event
The self-proclaimed “new renaissance artist” working under the name The Honourable Elizabeth A. Baker embraces a constant stream of change and rebirth in practice. Her artistic output expands into a variety of media and is chiefly an exploration of how sonic and spatial worlds can be manipulated to personify a variety of philosophies and principles.
In this lecture, she will discuss the scope of her “Field Studies” project, which invites participants to consider an improvisational performance experience in which a human performer is an equal collaborator alongside all object elements and/or characters within a naturally occurring soundscape; likewise, the performer enters the space with an intention of channeling and interacting with nature rather than exploiting the features of the soundscape in an act of “artistic manipulation.” Through dismantling the human-centered narrative, this project seeks to foster dialogue and act as revolutionary resistance against systemic inequity.
