ARTPORN is a collaboration between poet Jacob Brooks and musician and audio engineer Maya Chun. Full-body performances of nine of Brooks' poems meet live processing, samples, and background tracks performed by Chun to produce a loud, stimulating spectacle taking the combined form of ambient set, poetry reading, and persona performance.
