A Gift from Former Session Artist Kara Hearn

Now watch TREMENDOUS in its entirety!  Organized around the principle of a tidal wave, the content of the video was shot with the participation of more than 170 visitors during a three-month residency at Recess.  Hearn built seven minimalist gray-scale sets inside the storefront space and invited visitors into conversation with the use of an intake form. The resulting video is a complex but cohesive experimental narrative about the experience of being overwhelmed. It is made up of interviews, reenactments, and performances conceived of in collaboration with visitors.  Click here to download the original press release.
