Processed Circumstance – Amanda Faye Cain

In case you were unable to attend the opening reception, the Access Arts Belle Isle Exhibit runs until Saturday July, 31. You can retrieve a copy of the map at

Also, we will have a special repeat performance by Amanda Faye Cain. She will begin her performance promptly at 6:30 PM on Friday, July 30. Her performance will take place on the Northwest side of the Riverbank Dr, just past Vista Dr. You will also pass the beach and the frame for the ice sculpture on your way there. River Bank Dr is the perimeter road on the Northwest side of the Island.

Her performance is entitled, “Processed Circumstance”. The few mediums used are electronic garbage (thanks to the help of many willing friends), and the natural environment. This particular performance touches on themes related to over-consumption and human communication.

In addition to her performance, you are welcome to join us for a picnic afterward. Feel generous and bring a dish to pass. Exhibition maps will be made available at her performance site.

Thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday! It was a pleasure to see all of your beautiful faces. I hope you will join us for our next exhibition, October 2, 2010. Look for us on the Art Detroit Now listing as the event nears.

Please check out Forward Arts: Young Detroiters for the Arts, and special thanks to the Hub of Detroit for lending us bikes. Go there for all your bike needs.…

“Processed Circumstance”

Hollowed one, how could you bare witness
and then need
a second
to remind you
of our purpose?
I weave a thought from inside mine and into yours,
unnatural cocoon,
filled with our hopes and dreams and fears and failings
that we are not yet conscious of.
I search, as you search, for me,
and for yourself,
but where will you find
the answer
to the riddle that we collectively ask?
On garbage day, we restart once more.
On payday, we fill up our hands –
when it is one another that we need access to.
Eyes on the prize, the material, the physical.
Hands on it.
Hearts on it.
Off of the solution.
