Language is the driving force behind my work. I am interested in the intersection of the body, word, and object as a means of gaining deeper insight into how we communicate with each other—how we formulate identity (or hide it)—as well as to how language's inherent blind spots affect our sense of collective consciousness. I explore these concepts through site-specific installation, performance, sculpture and digital collage. Emphasizing the glitch or rupture, I use these media to obfuscate, reveal, and choreograph the ways in which viewers encounter physical and psychic space: to question our understanding of linguistic and cultural inheritance.Want to contact? email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Currents (2020) is a visual, sonic and spoken word collaboration by Kara Rooney and Fausto Palma. Made in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, the piece wrestles with the complex physical, emotional and psychic realities we are currently experiencing, both as individuals and as a collective body.
