KINETECH ARTS FEATURED ARTIST SERIES / 2014
“Single Point Perspective: The One Truthiness”
The award-winning, innovative, interdisciplinary art and technology dance company, Kinetech Arts invited me to present at their bi-monthly Featured Artist Series. People had been asking about my live wax painting performances. They thought I would present a slideshow of my work. I took the opportunity to present the first draft of a completely new idea.

THE FLIGHT DECK / 2018
“The One Truthiness : Oakland”
Produced by Lower Bottom Playaz
Conceived as a quarterly series, the Oakland cycles are designed to be embedded in an existing community with a past and a future. As a series, the project can reach beyond a single performance or event. Each cycle, the text and images will evolve to reflect current issues of local concern. It can grow with the community.
Oakland is one of the most diverse communities in the United States. It has a rich history of creativity, innovation, fortitude, and conflict. It is where both the Black Panthers and #BlackLivesMatter began. It is also undergoing rapid change with new residents coming in, enticed by the creative energy, but often unaware of Oakland's history or the scale of displacement of current residents.
