We’ll never be able to look at the wading pool the same way

Chorus Two takes inspiration from the swaying and prayer known as davening that is performed by Jewish men during religious rituals. The music for Chorus Two is created and performed by Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, a musician and performance artist who grew up in a deeply religious Muslim family in Lebanon. Chorus Two is inspired by an idea of movement that is an integral part of prayer; movement, in short, that is spiritual and in so being seeks a connection to some greater power.” –

“a spatial order organizes an ensemble of possibilities (e.g., by a place in which one can move) and interdictions (e.g., by all wall that prevents one from going further), then the walker actualizes some of these possibilities. In that way, he makes them exist as well as emerge. But he also moves them about and he invents others, since the crossing, drifting away, or improvisation of walking privilege, transform or abandon spatial elements.” – Michel de Certeau, The Practice of Everyday Life

What’s all this?

I've created this site to document and share research and activities related to my Masters of Arts program. It's partially a blog, partially a journal, partially whatever you want it to be. Feel free to have a good look around at what I'm reading, seeing, writing and thinking about. I'd love to see/hear your comments.
