1. The event is a solo multimedia performance piece that explores the responses of three volunteer subjects trying to support science in its aim to help humans survive global warming. It’s a live performance that is accompanied by a video projection. The video projection features two characters, a scientist and a humanist, both played by me. The live performance consists of three shoes and a dog collar which I puppet in a variation of Japanese puppet theater called Bunraku.

    This performance took place on stage at Portland Community College Rock Creek Campus.

  2. The topic addresses how care-taking robots in nursing homes might affect society. I was inspired to write this script after reading segments from the book: Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other by Sherry Turkle. In it she writes about the possibility of robots supplanting humans as caretakers in nursing homes in the near future. She interviewed people across different age groups and found that most of the elderly found this desirable and expressed more faith in the abilities of robots than in humans. I was quite struck by these sentiments and wanted to explore what this says about society in a humorous way.
