A.K. Burns’ epic four-channel video installation, A Smeary Spot, is infused with a constellation of queer bodies and futurities; feminist theory and sci-fi; dance, performance, and cinematic image; and radical politics and philosophies of space and time. Burns shares the impetuses and influences of her TBA project in dialogue with TBA Guest Scholar Stephanie DeGooyer. See DeGooyer’s essay on A Smeary Spot in this year’s TBA Visual Art publication.
