Coded Messages: CHAINS was a site-specific performance ecology created by master drummer Francis Kofi, Andruid Kerne, Mel Lang, and an ensemble of Ghanaian dancers and drummers for the Pan-African Theater Festival (PANAFEST) in 1994.
Playas: Homeland Mirage is an interactive installation situated in a faux living room, with overstuffed chair and game console. The game, built with the Torque game engine, looks like a first-person shooter. The player is left to ironicially figure out that, unlike the characters, they have no guns.
