Early Media Rituals

Beginning with Viscera, a multimedia rumination on Evolution produced while a graduate student at MIT's Center for Advanced Visual Studies, Ebon Fisher produced a series of experiments involving the immersion of audiences into a bath of performance, live music and media. Most of these productions involved biological themes. Fisher prepared the following diagrams for an exhibit at the New School for Social Research in 1992. These productions informed Fisher's media rituals in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which lead to his Bionic Codes and Zoacodes.

Evolution of the Grid










“What is impressive about  “Viscera” is the central 

large-mindedness of the work....  It is one thing in a time of perceived cultural drifting and personal alienation for art to bemoan the conditions of trouble. It is quite another, and substantially more difficult, to imagine what could be better, to evoke that which might help us. Mr. Fisher’s 

is such an evocative art.”
