When I say “outer” disciplinary, I am specifically addressing the complications I have discovered in using the word “inter” in regards to work that brings together artists, tools and methodologies from different disciplines. In the extensive curation I have done over the past number of years, I have come to feel how abused this term - "inter-disciplinary" - has become.

With my conceptual project U-N-M-A-R-K-E-D, I'm always seeking to interrogate, exploit, question, and subvert what it means to have a conversation between dance and video, sound and performance, storytelling and fashion design. Inevitably, the artists and the tools move out from the “inter” in opposing directions. The work becomes less gravitationally bound and more like a constellation of ideas, occasionally glimmering or bouncing off each other - much like the work of Rauschenberg, Cunningham, and Cage.
