havoc and tumbled
1224 W Loyola Ave, Chicago IL

The collisions and ecstasy of 3, 2, 1 . . . and the 6,028th time it gets called. What happens in the limbs, in the gut, on the lips, when everyone in the room locks on synch? Learning To Inherit The Long Slog. In order to be ready we're lining the windows with plants that thrive in tumult, turning on our TVs, and battening down to find a few kinds of time: 3, 2, 1. . . .
Kera MacKenzie and Andrew Mausert-Mooney are artists and collaborators living in Chicago. Their projects together have explored broadcast; seams in the scenery; liveness, simultaneity and other kinds of time; the possibility and politics of making new images. Together they founded and co-direct ACRE TV, an artist-made livestreaming tele-vision network.
