Jonah finally returns to Washington DC!

Jonah Bokaer in Washington DC, at last!! Replica (2009) examined memory loss, pattern recognition, and perceptual faculties as they apply to the human body. In collaboration with visual artist Daniel Arsham, the piece employed built spaces, objects, lighting, and other media to create the illusion of an expanded space through the use of video and other still images. The work created situations on stage that could not veritably exist in physical space: this was through the use of creative geography in video and built spaces, transporting movement to different locations that appear to be just outside the siteline of the audience. (It was commissioned 2009 by the Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences // CPNAS Washington.)
