"..The project's creation phase involves an ongoing three week performance activity of the artist negotiating her way singing through lower mainland neighbourhoods. The result of these encounters (through documentation will be then further developed into a fully interactive new media work (website) and DVD that allows the viewer to follow her sojourns on the landscape and experience her mappings from their own computer."

La Dragu has reinvented herself as Lady Justice channeling the Roman goddess Justita, the greek goddess Themis and the Egyptian goddess Ma'at to bring justice and jurisprudence to all!!!! While she has the scales she has lost the sword. This event is a benefit to get it back. It's a big problem as Ironing Man beloved leader of VisualEyes put it "Lady Justice is brave and true and looking fabulous but the strain is beginning to show. She is worried sick over the loss of her beloved Sword of Justice." Lady Justice will allow herself to be photographed with her fans for inclusion on her blog site for a small fee guaranteeing the participant immediate transformation into a mass media star. A small price to pay for Justice.

Tipi-Aalaya is a task-oriented performance incorporating elements of ritual and repetition set within a spoken-word soundscape. Drawing on her experience as a child of Fijian Indian and European parents growing up in New Zealand, and mistaken for a North American Indian, Singh addresses issues of identity, culture, otherness, and fusion. Her performance is followed by an installation that remains as a visual metaphor for her performative contemplations.

The performance iwll be about 30 to 40 minutes, part of the opening night and includes the video screening of The Fish Film, centered between the silver cloth panels. An important part are two slide projectors mounted at a 45 degree angle to the 'screen', containing specific slides (stills0 from the moving image. The video is projected not onto a screen, per se, but into wide sheets of quality drawing paper. My own actions consist of entering into the freeze-framed image of the film at which point the two projectors replicate the same image.
