Jack Straw New Media Gallery

Julia Freeman: IRISIRIS

Online exhibit launching July 24, 2020

Live conversation: Julia Freeman and Jed Murr:
Friday, August 7, 7pm
(streaming live via Facebook)

IRISIRIS is a set of looping online videos that corresponds to the eight phases of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment. EMDR focuses on reprogramming the brain's response to a traumatic event, changing how the event is stored, and reducing and eliminating problematic symptoms. By repetitively crossing the brain's hemisphere with sound and images, EMDR attempts to heal and reform neural pathways formed by the event.

Jack Straw Artist Performance

Saturday, July 11, 7pm
(watch the archived reading here!))

Jack Straw artist Mako celebrates the release of Portal, her new CD of traditional Okinawan music produced through the Jack Straw Artist Support Program, with a live performance from the studios at Jack Straw Cultural Center.

"My aim for the project was to compile some of the music I grew up hearing and hoping to be able to share it with others," says Mako. "It was like creating a family portrait . . . I'm not a photographer or writer so my medium is to play sanshin."
Mako plays sanshin and sings at Jack Straw
