1+1+0: performances in preparation for death is a participatory art ritual inspired by the ceremony of washing and dressing the deceased, as featured in the 2008 Japanese film Departures, as well as the non-dualistic Buddhist concept of ‘self/Self.’ As a site for numinous research and a death meditation on intergenerational, queer and cross-cultural sites of love, this ritual and installation offers access to shifting and simultaneous layers of meaning accessible through perception, affect and energetic sensing. 

[ field ] is an ongoing series of performance and installation collaborations between architect-installationist Brian Smith and performance artist Coman Poon.
