Ablakela is a performance work by Dana Claxton produced as a live performance, a live internet telecast and an enhanced audio CD with a CD ROM track. The work was produced in October 1999 as grunt's contribution to the performance festival Live at the End of the Century. Ablakela, the word meaning calm in the Lakota language, employed a large video projection of the artist, live, braiding grass while accompanied by two singers of the Native American Church. The simple, 45 minute work explores Lakota spirituality within a performance art construct.

Recently I have begun working on a series of small theatrical stagings of Murphys Law-like, visual pun, scenarios, averaging in size of about 12x12x12 in. These wall mounted, mixed media, tableau(s) or mini stage-like works, will employ either/or: human powered movement(s); pop-up book mechanisms; implied kinetic structures; or motorized mechanical engineering.
