Abstract: Artists Natalie G’NAT Wetzel and Mark Andrus orbit again from The Moon, their transdisciplinary studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for Foxy News, a tale about a giant fox and a determined ‘shooter’ who investigate causes of emotional derailing while riding trains through foreign lands. This strange bed fellow story spins from myth and fable within a landscape of global, political absurdity, using concepts within physics as the narrative structure. Non locality and entanglement become the mechanics that dictate the main characters' actions.
During their Foxy News tour, Wetzel and Andrus will do a performance/lecture at Royal Institute of Technology, focusing on their transdisciplinary approaches to creating and unusual methods for educating and engaging our global community. The duo will share projects from the past couple years, focusing on how they have choreographed sculpture, performance, photography, film, music, editorial work and scientific inquiry under The Moon.
