Black Water was created in the former Spiro’s Mediterranean Market space on the University Avenue corridor as a sensory exploration of the displacement and disconnection that make things such as drone warfare and the military contractor debacles possible. Inspired in part by W.G. Sebald’s novel, Austerlitz, this work was a comically visceral look at the intersection of remote violence and forgotten history. Black Water is the final leg of a journey that began with Strange Love (2007) and He Woke Up In A Strange Place Called Home And Although Looking For Bed He Kept Finding Death Instead (2009).
