R&D Program Director Megan McClain interviews Associate Artist Rebecca Hart about her project with composer David Kornfeld being developed in the Civilians R&D Group. Based partly on their own neurodiverse lives, the work asks questions about creativity, sanity, and what we consider "normal."
“Occupy Your Mind” is an open-sourced living history of the Occupy movement. Anyone anywhere can participate by conducting an interview, performing it, and posting it to the Occupy Your Mind Tumblr. This past April, the Civilians and others came together to give a performance of “Occupy Your Mind” material. Here, Molly Camp performs Mary, who worked with the Yesmen on a public demonstration that caught Boomberg’s eye. Hadi Tabbal plays noted Occupy activist Amin, who talks about the future of the movement and how Occupy relates to past moments of global activism. Finally, Erica Rose plays Occupier Sandy, an activist who talks about being followed by the police.
