  • Fermaentra

Using morse code, slide projection, and archival / live audio recording, W. Scott Howard and Ryan Wade Ruehlen explore the conflicted beauty of language as code: where information, memory, space and power overlap. We hope you'll join us for an evening of performance poetics — and great craft beer — at the intersection of DU and CU's experimental communities!
