Anthony R. Green
It Must All Be Done In Darkness is a multimedia project dedicated to Harriet Jacobs, author of “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl” (1861). As an enslaved woman, Ms. Jacobs suffered violent abuse, fought for her freedom, and spent seven years in isolation, hiding from her persecutors in an attic crawl space. In an effort to tell Ms. Jacobs‘s story with depth and respect, Green will collaborate with MRI scientists and psychoanalysts on generating still and moving imagery as well as birthing sounds, movements and music.
