Project Description/Abstract

I have been invited by the Museu Di Cultura in Praia, Cape Verde to visit the island and make art as part of a group interaction between interdisciplinary international and Cape Verdean artists. The purpose of this group interaction is to reveal changes in the Island's artistic practice due to sudden economic growth and pressure for globalization within the Islands. I plan to use the medium of video to record daily encounters in Cape Verde and to investigate the use of language in Cape Verdean music and culture, with an analytical eye towards the ongoing signs of globalization. The results of this cross-cultural exploration will be presented in an art exhibition in Praia in June 2008.
