GSWS Acts (Workshop): prOphecy sun

This workshop will explore more-than-human relationships, voice, smartphone technology, improvisational techniques, and found sounds taken from urban and rural environments such as flora and fauna, wind, and birds. Techniques and skills learned may be applied to a wide range of creative and academic projects and will appeal to experimenters of any age and artistic background. Participants will have the opportunity to share and reflect on their compositions.

Dr. prOphecy sun is an interdisciplinary performance artist, queer, movement, video and sound maker, mother, and current Jack and Doris Shadbolt Fellow in the Humanities at Simon Fraser University. Her practice celebrates both conscious and unconscious moments and the vulnerable spaces of the in-between in which art, performance, and life overlap. Her recent research has focused on ecofeminist perspectives, co-composing with voice, objects, surveillance technologies, and site-specific engagements in the BC region and beyond. She is a member of art/mamas, and the Arts Editor for Ecocene: Cappadocia Journal of Environmental Humanities. She performs and exhibits regularly in local, national, and international settings, music festivals, conferences, and galleries and has authored several peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and journal publications.
