PERFORMANCES

8:30pm Tomi Tait

9:00pm Bio-glitz fashion parade

Tomi Tait is a Brooklyn-based multimedia artist. His work covers a range of mediums working with painting, sound, sculpture, writing, and puppetry. In 2019 he founded the Rainbow of Wounded Insects Theater (RWI): an ever-expanding puppet play that explores the intersections of ontology, psychoanalysis, and religion.

Alex Patrick Dyck is a multimedia poet and splosh artist; a romantic hoarder of sentimental trash and trampled roses, an altar builder, and a memory gatherer. They explore their own vulnerability in an attempt to preserve the inherent fragility of natural objects as they encounter resin, metal, and bodily fluids. The incorporation of obscured and disjointed text is used as a way to both establish intimacy with the viewer as well as to remind us that understanding and language are not identic. The works are constantly decaying and changing in texture and color, a grotesque reminder of our own mortality.

BioGlitz unique biodegradable glitter and fashion line and formula that connects us all through shine and respect for nature. We believe environmental consciousness drives self-decor! Our mission is to knock down boundaries, preconceived notions of normality, and fuel acceptance with a dash of color.

For their installation Secret Project Robot will install a black light magic lantern lounge in the heart of the fair, entitled Traveling through Dimensional Rift in the Mystic Jungle.  It will be a psychedelic forrest enclosed in a capsule, where visitors will be immersed in future light created by a past sun, the installation will have paintings, and installation features that deliver a totally dissociative effect, creating a realm, where we can all meet on the astral plane.
