Unity Study is a performance installation and collaboration between Rebecca Bruno, Lynn Ellen Bathke, Mak Kern, and Ben Ross joined by dancer Samantha Mohr and visual artist Matt Ross. Coming together in weekly sessions, they investigate how objects, sound, bodies, and the spaces they inhabit coalesce to create experience and thereafter, how memories of the experience are physically stored and accessed. The artists collectively explore formal and conversational aspects of their work through live encounter and archive. The site becomes a creative laboratory, dance space, drawing studio, artist retreat, and virtual amalgamation of past and present realities, walking the line between intimate private exploration and public presentation with both sensitivity and generosity.
