Excerpt showing immediately after Untitled Peter Tripp Project.
Statement from Nadia Ross:
STO Union, the company I founded in 1992, is heading towards its 30th year of operations and the board of directors has tasked me with finding a way to mark the occasion. This presentation is my first attempt at sharing ideas on how to do that. I’d like it to be a celebration, but as I think about the future I also have to think about the end, because that’s what celebrations do, they mark the change of things. Join me as I figure it out, live, with you and share some of what STO Union is up to.
Loosely inspired by Réjean Ducharme's book of poems L’Hiver de force, Straight Jacket Winter is a semi-autobiographical work about the the growing phenomenon of mass mobility and its repercussions for our social and emotional lives, and for our sense of who we are.
