This video documents a poetry and music performance which was created in response to an exhibit of five sculptures by Andy Zimmermann, at the Boston Sculptors Gallery in May, 2011.
The pieces were titled after the sculptures: You Again!, Dressing Room, Reflection, 13 Not Me, and Meing & Nothingness.
The first scene shows the sculptures in the gallery: four works using mirrors, and a fifth which is a set of viewer-triggered kinetic sculptures which produce sound. The video then shows clips from the five pieces of the performance.
The poets are Rosamond Zimmermann and Cammy Thomas. The musicians are Froilan Decan on guitar, John Scales on drums, and Andy Zimmermann on midi-guitar.
