Dawn Kasper - On Desire or THE METHOD

As part of the ongoing exhibition Studio Systems, artist Dawn Kasper performs a new, site-specific sound composition and sculptural environment exploring historical references to the philosophy of desire. Using a process-based and itinerant approach (she has worked outside a permanent studio since 2008), Kasper creates a kind of living sculpture she calls the Nomadic Studio Practice Experiment.
