"Saturday Morning" is a multichannel audio + video installation based on my experiences in Chicago as an abortion clinic escort. Using interviews with my fellow clinic escorts, field recordings of protestors, and video of myself preparing for my shift, the piece Immerses the audience in the experience of working as a clinic escort.
I've previously exhibited this piece as a live performance at the Chicago Laboratory for Electro-Acoustic Theatre (https://elasticarts.org/cleat). Building a smaller, traveling multi-channel system and pairing it with video (rather than live performance) will allow the piece to have a much wider life.
