Nicole Siggins and I have started an art collective called disco snail! This year we made a short film, Resist Tanz which got into two film festivals in Germany (the Hamburg International Short Film Festival and the Braunschweig International Film Festival), and Ridiculous Love, an installation interactive art project. All our projects will be listed on discosnail.com, posted on our disco_snail instagram, and eventually posted here too! Read More

Love is often ridiculous. This participatory art project invites you to share your experiences of how ridiculous love is for you.
Here’s a time lapse video of our installation in September at the Volkspark Friedrichshain in Berlin:

A short film by Nicole Siggins and Adina Bogert-O’Brien, March 2017
In an ever tumultuous world, these resistors dance their erratic, playful and furious dance. They are at war, they are fighting, they long to be free. They escape their confines, resist, and are dragged back into slavery. They move, they combat, they dance. They are spiky and strong. They are up against each other. Their conflict becomes a dance. Today is the time to resist, take action, and use the magnetic forces that exist to let yourself dance free in resistance. Resist Tanz.
