Readers: Zahra Belyea, Mary Driscoll, Stacey Holiday, Sonya Joyner, Christine Noah, and Amy West.
Sculpture, Rick Dorff
The sculpture reflects the anonymity of incarcerated individuals who are out of sight and mind in a system that tacitly supports the dehumanizing conditions of the institutions that store them. Lighting inside of the cell/cage is activated by external motion providing a connection to the life within, free and spontaneous communication.
Music, Joseph Del Ponte
A contemporary instrumental pianist with pop, classical, and jazz influences. Del Ponte creates improvised soundscapes that move with the mood of the space.
