Marilyn Arsem : Time Body Space Objects 4 @Spectacle Island

  • Spectacle Island Spectable Island Boston, MA USA (map)


In conjunction with Isles Art Initiative

SEVEN DISAPPEARANCES : durational performance

We are sitting atop the remains of previous generations. What survives?  What dissappears?  What changes? This performance consists of seven demonstrations of the transformation of materials.

Inspired by the history of Spectacle Island Marilyn will be doing a durational piece throughout the day near the shade shelter on the South drumlin.
