Provision Provision is a duet that maintains a continuous engagement with improvisation, urban life, haptic interaction, and dance. The piece, part of a larger body of performance and visual art work, touches on a range of subjects including the weight of the historical transition from analog to digital as a metaphor for the transition from corporeal to the immaterial in human experience.
