In the spring of 2020, we were a class called “Egocircus, a Workshop in Collaboration.” Then of course we became a Zoom class. For some reason, the class did not end but became a virtual laboratory for artmaking, choreography, video, jokes, gossip, philosophy. We got confused doing Share Screen + Share Computer Audio. We did things we were not very good at—sometimes together, sometimes with our future selves. We revised toward friendship, floating in different rooms of our home(s).
In September 2022 we performed a haunted house titled Salt at NYU (this cover is a map of the haunted house). It was such a good time we celebrated by square dancing and then made these pages, which we’ve called “How Joyous We Once Were” (inside back cover).
