The Kinship Structure of Ferns
is a comic book, an audio recording, and a performance. An imaginary autobiography, it is built of vignettes over the course of a person's life, culminating in a visitation of past selves.
You can get copies of the book/recording by writing to me (let's trade!), or by going to Sparkplug Comic Books
, Printed Matter
, or Quimby's
It was first performed in Chicago for the Hemispheric Institute of Politics and Performance
's annual convergence. A clip of the performance at the Empty Bottle in Chicago can be seen here on YouTube
. The performance also had a touring version, when I toured with it in the spring of 2009 as part of the Fingers Tour
