Presented by (a)eromestiza and SpaceSuperStar, Dimension of IS is a hybrid live performance that incorporates science fiction, sound, video, and installations to create an expansive world in which the artists speculate about the (d)evolution of America's role as a super power beyond earth. The piece educates the public about the history of America's global domination, starting with the Filipino-American War at the turn of the 20th Century and the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. At this Fair, 1200 so-called Filipino savages along with many other ethnic specimens and gender ambiguities were displayed to the American public to garner support for the war, which propelled America into its new role as an imperial power. Dimension of IS also provides a critical perspective about America's Military Industrial Complex by questioning its role in outer space and revealing the Nazi origins of NASA's Masters of Space Program. The piece meshes past, present and future to illustrate the commonalities of histories of oppression in an effort to unite communities with an enlightened and revolutionary vision for the future.
