Notes - Field Theories (with Samiya Bashir and keyon gaskin) by Roland Dahwen Wu

Last summer, Samiya Bashir and I sat down to talk about making a video for her book of poetry FIELD THEORIES (Nightboat Books, 2017). One video became six: one per month until the book's release. We worked with the incomparable movement artist keyon gaskin who appears in all six videos, and many generous people participated in Field Theories #4. The six videos will be woven together into one continuous film for the month of March.

I'm honored and proud to share Field Theories #6 (February):
