When the cancer hollowed your body and made your insides tunnels for radiation, I was sitting in a cluttered college dorm room separating 82 calorie snacks into ziplock baggies in the hopes that I could shrink myself so that my flesh would cling tightly to my bones like yours.

I live in this printshop. Never again will I choose prep 4 different series for two different shows simultaneously. Never. I’ve learned my lesson and I’m covered in ink and bad smells and anxiety but Ifeel confident that it’s all good work and I’ve managed to create audio and zines. Can’t wait until mid-April when everything is up and I can sit back and let and audience tear my work apart lol.

That moment you are laying wood type and realize there is not enough type for the broadside you are creating and you foolishly consider chiseling your own wood type instead of moving on to a different typeface…

This is a very short excerpt from a forthcoming project. The original audio is 15 minutes was collected on July 16, 2013 on 125th and Lenox. Pasted below is the text I wrote back when I first collected this audio on my iPhone.

Across the street were the NOI brothers handing out the Final Call papers and was told the Five Percenters were camped out down the block. The religious diversity of Harlem, of Black people in the Americas. I stopped to talk to the Israelite brothers for a bit, collected some literature, read through all the placards and stuck around for the theatrics. I do not say theatrics to be dismissive, rather, it is an assertion that street proselytizing is inherently theatrical because they are trying to invite an audience into the public space they have co-opted/reclaimed as sacred ritualized space/micro learning stations. In order to keep an audience, they must be theatrical and performative. (Also, consider the charismatic Christian movement and the tactics used to draw an audience). I had seen brothers from this chapter perform before, but wanted to see it again for myself. I am curious about several elements of this site specific religious performance art — 1) the positioning of the preachers on a platform above everyone else 2) the tag team sermon delivery style where one brother delivered the sermon while another brother stood next to him and read Bible verses on command 3) the militarization of their clothing and spatial organization around the stage/table the preachers stood on 4) the use of a microphone and the cadence of their speech 5) the language used in the placard — mainly Bible verses 6) the studded uniforms 7) the absence of women.
