SHAWNÉ MICHAELAIN HOLLOWAY’S DEWCLAW.LIVE
As part of the ICA’s Test Pattern series, new media artist SHAWNÉ MICHAELAIN HOLLOWAY created DEWCLAW, a performance about wrestling with the vestigial desires hidden within our bodies and identities.
Filmed in front of a live audience in the ICA auditorium, DEWCLAW now finds new life online in the form of a website using custom pop up software that SHAWNÉ commissioned from internet artist and educator Nick Briz.
**Please note: Due to the site’s pop up windows, this experience is not suited to mobile devices. DEWCLAW.live will be online for 6 months.
