A catalog of wishes from Scientific Delirium Madness – Part 1

I am making a dance that asks the audience to imagine the future.  The following wishes for the future were generated from my personal studio practice with dancer Elizabeth Chitty, as well as in collaboration with the other Djerassi Residents:


I wish that everything was not so expensive.

I wish I wasn’t afraid of the unknown.

I wish for a future where everyone moves their body.

I wish I had a better relationship with my Dad.  I wish I actually knew him.

Dazzling FireBall: Space Junk, UFO or AI Swarm distribution coverup

While we were in residence at Scientific Delirium Madness a large fireball was seen in the sky over Palo Alto. Actually it was seen from San Francisco down to Los Angeles at the same time and it made it to Nevada and Utah before breaking up. The standard news took a few days to debate what the slow, glowing, giant comet-mass was. Delta Aquarid Perseid Meteor Shower ice ball? Flaming commercial airliner death ball? Off track or off map space junk?
