On May 12th, 2012, there was an installation of student-created performances, artworks, and more throughout the new Logan Arts Center. Over 100 student artists participated in a wide range of disciplines: everything from Circus Acrobatics and Video Projection to Shakesperian monologues were performed in and around the building at the same time, signifying the students claiming the new building as their own.
Diary of a Cyborg is a feature documentary directed by Jaclyn Todd, and explores the lives of young patients with Implanted Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs). The film will follow Jaclyn's own story, as an ICD recipient, as well as other young patients with the device. Interviews with experts in the medical community will supplement the personal narratives of these patients, all under the age of 25, and still in the process of understanding their ICDs and the idea of technological dependence.
I followed Le Vorris & Vox in spring of 2012 as they prepare for their final show of the academic year, The River Jordan.
