Hailing from Detroit, MI, AS220’s November Artists-in-Residence, Remote Control Tomato, will recreate their expanded audience interactive work, Con(text) this Friday at AS220’s Psychic Readings located in the 95 Empire complex. First performed in 2012 in Brooklyn, NY, Con(text) invites audience participation into a low and hi tech immersive environment of video and sound in which the audience not only becomes part of the performance but each audience member is guaranteed an completely unique personal experience of the performance. No two audience participants will have the same perspective as the evening unfolds. Join us for a unique look into capitalism, privacy, social justice, corporate advertising and more. Participation is not mandatory but encouraged!
