Memento Mori and the Princeton Atelier

I recently found out that in 2016 I will be co-teaching at the Princeton Atelier. It is a “unique academic program that brings together professional artists from different disciplines to create new work in the context of a semester-long course.” In my case I will be collaborating with Jennine Willett, Co-Artistic Director of Third Rail Projects, a multi-disciplinary company known for site-specific and immersive dance theater works. The class is tentatively called the Dance of Death and will seek to create an artwork in the tradition of Memento Mori. I will most likely have a dedicated site to the work but in the meantime, here is a “graphic essay” that will be part of a larger body of work on the subject of art and mortality.
