This series of performances was created as a part of a residency provided by High Concept Laboratories in 2018, and funded in part from a grant from 3Arts and donations made to 3Arts Projects. Thank You!

This series of performances was accompanied by a 128 page publication which contains essays about disability culture in Chicago by Courtney Graham, a brief history of madness by Sasha Durakov, and an approach to language as viewed through schizophrenia by Matt Bodett. The essays are accompanied by 56 color images of artwork created by Matt Bodett.   

This perfect bound catalogue is printed in a limited and hand numbered edition of 200.
