Ghost in the Shell (1995) as told by Abigail Conway

February 20, 2016

Artist Abigail Conway takes Deborah Pearson through the plot of Japanese animated sci-fi philosophical action mind f*ck Ghost in the Shell (1995).  Adapted from a series of graphic novels, the singularity is singularly unpacked, flatpacked and ready to upload in this mid 90s tale of semi-conscious semi-human cyborgs and their existential crises.  

Abigail Conway is a visual artist who works in the realm of live performance.  She explores intimacy through instruction-based work, and frequently commits long periods of time to learning new skills which she then shares and explores with her audience members/participants.  For her most recent piece Ride she learned how to drive a motorcycle, became licensed, and then took audience members on motorcycle rides (or as she called them, motorcycle meditations) through the hills of Tanzania.
