synthesis gallery presents Variations on the Fear of Disappearing, a durational sound installation featuring words and works by four poets: Bill Lessard, Nadia de Vries, Carlos Lara, and Cat Tyc. Curated by Jeffrey Grunthaner, the event will go live on Mozilla Hubs on February 25th, 20:00 CET, and run continuously through the following day. FEELINGS is a group exhibition that explores new modes of expression and social interaction within the digital space. For the final event in the exhibition’s programming, four poets have been invited to linguistically fill out Kathi Schulz's immersive VR work, The Fear of Disappearing. Extending the unfinished narrative implied by Schulz's storied environment, pre-recorded readings by each of the four poets will echo throughout her space, telescoping the divide between theater and the natural world.
