Dylan McLaughlin is a sound and video performance artist who critically examines legacies of extraction and resilience. His project in Joshua Tree, Felt Topography, is a set of site-specific visual and acoustic experiments using various performative tools to examine concepts of deep time stillness and displacement. They form meditations on relationships to place, harmony, and disharmony and what is emerging is a portrait of fragility, vulnerability, resistance, adaptation, and transformation. BoxoPROJECTS invites you to join us for Dylan’s open studio to experience the visual and sonic outcomes of this data collected during his residency.
