MUSCULAR BONDING-PHOTO DOCUMENTS Adriana Disman, Nina Isabelle, Kaia Gilje, Beth Neff, Esther Neff, Edward Sharp M.A.R.S.H, St. Louis / Living Arts, Tulsa, OK February 15 - March 5, 2018 We traveled, lived, worked, and performed together for three weeks as a performance experiment conceived, initiated, and enforced by Esther Neff. On February 15, 2018 we drove from Panoply Performance Lab in Brooklyn, NY to M.A.R.S.H (Materializing & Activating Radical Social Habitus) in St. Louis, MO. We lived, worked, and ate together under strict and extreme circumstances, and then performed actions that were devised through collective manipulation to "materialize participant's structural realities" at The New Genre Art Festival at Living Arts Tulsa.

HOME ABOUT PROJECTS THREE PHASE CONTACT SEARCH More... WE CAN'T TELL WHAT WE'RE DOING A recursive Installation event including painting, sculpture, performance, wearables, photo & video, explosions, and more. HiLo Catskill, NY June 20 - August 26, 2018 Through the superimposition of objects, photographs, video, action, painting, performance and narratives, We Can't Tell What We're Doing presses toward and hunts for a shift in meaning. This work is an inquiry and demonstration of a process that highjacks the past as a way to cultivate a future the way an AI robot might discover how to make sourdough bread out of itself. We Can't Tell What We're Doing is the discovery of a process that eats itself and then absorbs information from its own bowels. In attempt to manipulate spatial priority through ingesting inspections of object installation designed to illuminate internalized pockets of herniated or obstructed space where abstracted, impacted, and encrypted information and nutrient data might be stuck or diverted, this process reveals itself as a method that facilitates a solid flow of information that can be used to bind meaning and value to the motility of art in a regular way.

HOME ABOUT PROJECTS THREE PHASE CONTACT SEARCH More... FEMINIST ART GROUP (F.A.G.) doing JUST SITUATIONS June 23, 2017 Grace Exhibition Space Brooklyn, NY "Just Situations is a hybrid conference, festival, and “political science fair,” hosting artists and active citizens who are working in performative ways, moving beyond the trending commercialization of art “about” politics, into non-representational and non-reproductive modes of performance which directly construct, speculate, design. position, and posit “just” forms of political, social, and personal human being and becoming." "States of unknowing, collectivity transcending and social becoming are workshopped and parsed, particulated and presented." JUST SITUATIONS is a project of the Brooklyn International Performance Art Foundation (BIPAF). BIPAF is an ongoing (since 2013), communal, and demi-anonymous/open-source platform for performance of socially-constructive institutional critique. https://justsituations.wordpress.com/ IMG_E6818 Thea Little, IV Castellanos Elizabeth Lamb Quinn Dukes Elizabeth Lamb Elizabeth Lamb Elizabeth Lamb Elizabeth Lamb Elizabeth Lamb, IV Castellanos 1/1
- VIDEO MANIFESTATION SYSTEM | nina-isabelle
HOME ABOUT PROJECTS THREE PHASE CONTACT SEARCH More... THE VIDEO MANIFESTATION SYSTEM A METHODOLOGY FOR MANUFACTURING NEW REALITIES Released by HUMAN TRASH DUMP on ARCHIVE.ORG NOVEMBER 2017 Download Video Manifestation System from HUMAN TRASH DUMP here: https://archive.org/details/htdc005 (CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE VMS USER ARCHIVE ) Free download: The VMS User Manual INTRODUCTION The Video Manifestation System offers users a radicalized system to build and shape reality. By interlacing specific VMS concepts like user approach, intention, perception, and language with the Multidimensional Human Perception Apparatus, VMS offers users a tool to build useful realities while simultaneously eliminating outmoded corporeality. VMS transforms beneficial etherial notions, wishes, dreams or ideas into tangible reality. By psychically entangling multiple abstractions extrapolated from the experimental statistics and algebraic concepts that have preceded non-locality, quantum teleportation, and superdense coding, VMS aligns intention with action to produce a compact five-minute digital video capable of manufacturing realities. Complete with prescriptive application suggestions for maximum results, users enjoy a simple ten-step interface with infinite reality building possibilities. VMS incorporates a biopsychospiritual approach to reality building which expands upon a model of human cognition developed by neuroscientist Karl Pribram and physicist David Bohm called the holonomic brain theory that describes the brain as a holographic storage network. By stretching the boundaries of the holonimic brain to include the holonomic energy bodies, VMS is able to access The Multidimensional Human Perception Apparatus (MHPA,) an invisible system capable of transducing the seen and unseen systems of the inner and outer holonomic energy bodies. Shaped like an amorphic electronic cloud, and made up of subatomic elementary particles like tau neutrinos within and surrounding the body, the MHPA remains unbound by namable physical structures and is key to rediscovering the reality manufacturing capabilities once central to human functioning. Prolonged interface with the slow and heavy dimension of physical reality has jammed up and run down the MHPA. Over time, central manifestation components of the MHPA, such as gut biomes and subquantum receptive structures within the cerebral spinal fluid surrounding the brain and brainstem, have become ineffective. VMS works to restore the MHPA functions by engaging users in a process intended to distract the conscious linear logic mind, effectively creating an intentional feedback loop. Building reality begins with perception. With the conscious linear logic mind out of the way, the inner workings of the MHPA are allowed to surface and be directed toward reality building ventures. Designed to facilitate singular and multiple aspects of both internal and external realities through its micro/macro input manifold, VMS is an effective tool for revising a broad range of issues and circumstances ranging from internal personal mental and emotional struggles like boredom, lethargy, dyscalculia, co-dependance, and heartbreak to physical conditions like high blood pressure, whip lash, sciatica, poison ivy, aphasia, temporal lobe epilepsy, and broken bones. VMS also makes it possible to address complex problems within a community or family dynamic such as authoritarianism, prolonged bitter quarrels, dishonesty, and miscommunications and is also a powerful instrument for reshaping dysfunctional pieces of corporeal reality not limited to broken waste oil burners, miscalibrated stopwatches, busted serpentine belts, misaligned zippers or stuck elevators. Larger external dangers such as injustices due to the abuse of political or economic power systems like racism, genocide, domestic violence, mass shootings, Satanic cults, and violent regimes have also proved pliant. As an interface, VMS connects humans to powerful forces of nature and offers a way to transform destructive energies resulting from disasters like tsunamis, pollution, wild fires, blight, drought, crop damage, nuclear war, sink holes and volcanos into a generative force fueled by natural and cosmic elements that can be directed into new realities or dispersed as weather phenomena. Users are encouraged to think galactic. VMS has been proven useful for wrangling cosmic energies, entities as well as astral bodies like planets, moons, black and worm holes, comets, solar storms, and supernovas.

HOME ABOUT PROJECTS THREE PHASE CONTACT SEARCH More... LANDLINES Performance by Nina Isabelle & Jennifer Zackin at CX Silver Gallery in Brattleboro, VT. August 26, 2018 An interactive type of immersion-therapy, Landlines invites viewers & participants to make their own meaning out of actions and gestures happening within a sea of dissonance. How do we cultivate the cultural phenomena of communication while agendas of power and dominance try to hijack our semiotic proclivity with fake news and ad campaigns designed to entrench us in divisive notions of entitlement and correctness? When lines of communication become connected to fear, anger, and resentment, how do we clear and reground them to empathy and grace?

HOME ABOUT PROJECTS THREE PHASE CONTACT SEARCH More... THE WINDMILL WEAPON MATRON MAY 2016 The Windmill Weapon Matron was built on May 12, 2016 and exhibited on June 3, 2016 as part of The New School's Social Justice exhibition with The Bushwick Collective. Materials include s awhorse, l umber, co nstruction m aterials, s pray p aint, h ouse p aint, a fghans, w eapons, b icycle p arts, y arn, p laster, t erra c otta, c hain. She is 90h x 53w x 45d. She is a dangerous female machine expressing an active stance and aggressive posture. She no longer identifies as passive and has most recently emerged as an international threat. Based on a jumbled compilation of afghans, defunct bicycle parts, weapons, lumber, and chain her biographical narrative has been holographically reconfigured into a destructive biological machine made of woman’s time. While The Windmill Weapon Matron acknowledges her destructive approach as a natural response to her capacity for childbirth, she hesitates to dichotomize the two simply saying “Come, let me destroy you.” Utilizing a process of defiance The Windmill Weapon Matron has successfully developed a system capable of transforming eye-rolling, financial aid application trauma, stuffed animal over population, and hair pulling as well as other sensory input bull shit into a clean, renewable, and sustainable energy source for mothers. Nobody will lend her a chainsaw It is safe to breed with her She makes a mockery of science Her system is nervous Her face is spinning When she was a virgin politicians killed and ate her She is secular Her system has calcified She loves The Antichrist She birthed a female bastard She wan’t trained up the way she should go The system tries to destroy her She has nothing to depart from Rabbits fear her She has been relieved of advantage Her system is unkillable
- SEEMRIPPER | nina-isabelle
HOME ABOUT PROJECTS THREE PHASE CONTACT SEARCH More... SEEMRIPPER A conceptual video-performance demonstrating artist as self replicator The Elizabeth Foundation As Far As The Heart Can See Curated by Nicolás Dumit Estévez October 2018 Seemripper was produced using The Self-Limiting Conceptual Video Production Process; a system that interlaces action, duration, direction, speed, sound, color, sequence, subject and object to form a linear audio and visual arrangement. The Self-Limiting Conceptual Video Production Process was designed as a system to sidestep consciousness in order to access lateral dimensions of awareness and is a continuation of The Video Manifestation System released by Human Trash Dump in January 2018. The video-performance frames the artist as a self replicator caught in a recursive loop of infinite destruction and renewal generated by the physical and quantum relationships between fire, water, air, metal and earth. This project was initiated by Linda Mary Montano as part of 'In Honor Of,' a performance series Curated by Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful with curatorial fellow JP - Anne Giera at The Elizabeth Foundation in New York City on October 20, 2018. Performers were nominated by artists featured in 'As Far As The Heart Can See' (Nao Bustamante, Billy X. Curmano, Irina Danilova & Project 59, Beatrice Glow, Ivan Monforte, Linda Mary Montano, Praxis (Delia & Brainard Carey), Beth Stephens & Annie Sprinkle, and Martha Wilson & Franklin Furnace Archive) and include former mentees, current students, assistants and younger artists whose work they admire: Elena Bajo Bajo, Sindy Butz, Larissa Gilbert, Nina Isabelle and Xinan (Helen) Ran.
