This aim of this series is to demonstrate the effects of life and living, exposing a ‘self’ to reality and collecting and integrating those experiences. Live electronic music performances by: Djime, Alpha Stream, Zen Seizure; Live art on canvas provided by: Tanya Dean, Jeff Harrison, Kevin Ducoing.”
