A second work in progress of Without Us, performed in November 2013 at the Tenderloin National Forest. inkBoat is working towards a 2017 premiere of this work in San Francisco.
This 2nd experiment asks: what is the difference between ‘imposing upon’ and ‘blending in’ with an environment? We had originally intended to pose this question in the frame of a ‘natural’ environment. However, we have come to the point of view that ‘natural’ includes you and me. Urban space, like humanity, is just another manifestation of nature.
