|06.28.18||Five Recommended Arts Events This Weekend by Wayne Alan Brenner (Austin Chronicle)|
One woman multimedia performance and art show featuring animatronic sculptures, projection, paintings, music, and movement.
In This is a Test of the Internal Emergency Broadcast System, an artist disguised in a bird-like costume guides viewers through an immersive installation consisting of video projection, diary sketches, and interactive mechanical dolls. The piece is meant to explore the mechanized nature of human life and a state of perpetual unrest, all the while poking fun at our fascination with the dark and animalistic parts of the human psyche. The show borrows its title from a poem by Lisa Olstein.
