Edge Tracks: a performative reading with Oana Avasilichioaei and Moina Pam Dick
January 27, 2020, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM EST
Writers/artists Oana Avasilichioaei and Moina Pam Dick read from their new hybrid books, setting form, thought, threat and escape, the drawn, seen and sounded in dialogue.
Eight Track is a transliterary exploration of traces. Sound recordings, surveillance cameras, desert geoglyphs, drone operators, refugee interviews, animal imprints, and audio signals manifest moments of inspired wonder, systems of power, slippages, debris. In “the great era of seeing” when the boundary between tracking agent and monitored subject is worn thin by politics and commerce, Eight Track assembles a set of discordant melodies, transcriptions, and images in a struggle to hold on to agency and awe. This is ultimately a book of relations—of each of us to each other, to other life forms, to environments, to the animal vitality we share.
