Nick-Briz-DINCA-Vision-Quest-2013

Here is a nice video recapitulation of Nick Briz‘s performance at DINCA Vision Quest 2013 (at Mana Contemporary, Chicago), a performance that lead to a new-media Holy Communion of sorts, where the audience joined in a line and received bread (mini cookies) from Briz.

A very special thanks to Anja Jamrozik for shooting and editing this video.

More documentation of VQ13 forthcoming.
