ASHA TAMIRISA
Piece for Fog Space

An intimate, site-specific performance inspired by the tension in Nakaya’s work of engineering a material that both shows and obscures its site, of making visible and tangible a medium that is vulnerable to its conditions. In this performance, sound reflects its site back to itself with subtle interventions.

ASHA TAMIRISA works with sound & image and researches media histories. Particular interests include tool-building with both software and hardware, experimental music and film, and intermedia composition & installation. Asha’s research integrates media archeological methods with feminist science and technology studies perspectives, looking closely and critically at often forgotten elements and conditions of media. Currently, Asha is a doctoral student at Brown University in the Computer Music and Multimedia department, and is concurrently pursuing an M.A. in Modern Culture and Media. Asha is a founding member of OPENSIGNAL, a group of artists concerned with the state of gender and race in electronic music/art practices.

FOG x FLO is FUJIKO NAKAYA’s first extended citywide exhibition of multiple “fog sculptures,” marking her five decade career with works at five sites along the Emerald Necklace park system. Created in response to the landmarked waterways and landscapes designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (FLO), Nakaya’s “climate responsive” shape-shifting, pure water forms invite visitors to immerse themselves in the art, experience nature anew, and appreciate the vital role of the Emerald Necklace in Boston’s history, present, and future.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Emerald Necklace Conservancy generously provided by Barbara and Amos Hostetter and the Eugene M. Lang Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Boston Foundation, as well as by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
