TOURIST (2019)
Multimedia Performance
Approx. 20 min

TOURIST is a lecture exploring race, music, and public space. Sitting at a table equipped with a microphone, projector, and computer, I share my memory of attending a community dance party in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A live feed of my desktop is projected on the wall in front of me and my voice is amplified through speakers. Using video clips, websites, maps, and music playlists, I restage elements of the dance party in virtual fragments. Over time, my personal narrative becomes a vehicle to interrogate the commodification of hip hop and the complex ways in which whiteness allows for cultural mobility in both physical and digital space.
