RA:I've known other artists who have participated in the festival in past years and have kept tabs on it just because it is such innovative and provocative public programming. When I saw this year's curatorial point of view, I absolutely had a, "That's what I do!" moment. I'm thrilled and honored that the curatorial staff feels the same way about my project.
RA:We will populate Union Square.
RA: This festival is happening at the right time in the right place for the right reasons. I have tremendous respect (and awe) for artists and people that multiply themselves and add new layers of self in this digital age. I do it too to the extent that I can thin myself out. Physical ritual however, peels us down to our essence. It reminds us of the catches and traps we had to create for ourselves before we could so easily get answers from the cloud. We need to remember about the blood, the spit, the light! We need to hold hands with one another. We need to cross the barriers that we're most afraid of crossing, so that we can learn why we were so damn afraid in the first place.
