Terminal Hip: American Dream in HD

JW
Terminal hip: ADHD is a TDM/History and Literature senior thesis production presented by Julius Wade in the Harvard Art Museums' Naumburg Room.

The one-man performance explores the history of the USA//conceptions of the American Dream through the medium of Mac Wellman's American language play and in the context of the historic American art collections at the Harvard Art Museums.

The experience is presented within an immersive audiovisual landscape (using projection and a binaurally recorded 3D headphone-audio track).
