Jimmy Baker (Cincinnati, OH) and Nathan Tersteeg (Richmond, VA) reunite as Dungeon Thud with Hairrier: The Hovering Drone in an ambitious installation that combines sound, video and performance staged on an abstracted Harrier Jet complete with spewing artificial hair. Taking full advantage of the public exposure of the street-level exhibition space, this collaborative installation seeks to synthesize the relationship of psychedelic rock to its symbiotic association with war and aggression. A live performance by Dungeon Thud was featured on opening night.
