Join artist Nora Turato and Ana Janevski, curator in the Department of Media and Performance, for a conversation following a performance of Turato’s "pool 5."

In Turato’s virtuosic performances, spoken word, graphic design, and book making are intertwined in an exploration of the possibilities of language in a culture oversaturated with information. Turato collects words and phrases from a range of sources, including the Internet, media headlines, advertisements, conversations, books, commercial products, and her own thoughts. pool 5—which takes the form of a performance and a book—assembles and arranges these “pools” of text into a growing script that Turato memorizes and performs, alternating rhythm and intonation, voices and modes.
