"Salome..." is a two-part project in collaboration with Filmmaker Luke Ohlson. In addition to its live public performances, time spent on site will be documented into a full-length film for screening and projection mapping into vacant pool spaces. OpenHouseGI is made possible by the Trust for Governors Island. Salome... was created during the LEIMAY Fellowship 2015 - 16 at CAVE.
