Featured: ATOM-r’s THE OPERATURE, Augmented Reality Performance Publication (Chicago) NSFW

Pinups creator, Christopher Schulz, and Chicago based performance art group, ATOM-r, have collaborated to carefully craft THE OPERATURE a 60 page Augmented Reality performance publication with pull out poster and micro-essay contributions from Anna Felicity Friedman, Kira O’Reilly, Anthony Romero, Matthew Steinbrecher and Fiona Wright. 

ATOM-r‘s The Operature is a durational live performance, installation and augmented reality poem that engages histories of forensics and anatomical science and spectacle. The work’s choreography, objects, text, and overall form and structure are influenced by research into a range of historical archives including early modern anatomical theatre, Frances Glessner Lee’s miniature crime scene re-enactments known as the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death, and The Stud File, a methodical record of the sexual exploits of Samuel Steward, a 20th century tattoo artist, pornographer, and friend of Gertrude Stein. 

Atom-r is a provisional collective exploring forensics, anatomy, and 21st century embodiment through performance, language and emerging technologies. Participants include Mark Jeffery (choreography), Judd Morrissey (text and technology), Justin Deschamps, Sam Hertz, Christopher Knowlton, Blake Russell, & Kevin Stanton (collaborators/performers). (Jeffery and Morrissey are former members of Goat Island Performance Group)
