Upcoming Events
James Ciosek's Human Hamster Wheel Performances

Rotational Aesthetics
Emily Sloan
Saturday, December 8, 2012
5 PM

This artistic practice takes as its theoretical and practical point of departure a human rotating an object in space. The role of this practice is to demonstrate a model of action within the existing form along with its new contexts in relation to its scale. Sloan, the collaborating artist, will serve as a catalyst of James Ciosek's Human Hamster Wheel.

Unna Bettie, Koomah, Jonatan Lopez, Kiki Maroon, Jessica Mendez, Raindawg, Hilary Scullane Militia "Malice" Tiamat,Rowdy Tidwell, Y.E. Torres, Jana Whatley and Sway Youngston
Saturday, December 15, 2012
3-5 PM

Continuum presents Counterclockwise, a carnivalesque performance art adventure. Exalting the Human Hamster Wheel as an icon of monotonous amusement, Continuum will create a deranged and twisted carnival environment around it, featuring belly dancers, hermaphrodites, a kissing booth, lion taming lessons, failed magic, palm readers and other enhanced oddities. In addition, there will be site specific performances inside the wheel. Bring quarters and dimes to enter the attractions.
