Vertical Integration (In Memoriam James Thomer)
Partially destroyed fragments of hundreds of musical instruments being thrown, pushed, dragged, and swept down a 6-story stairwell, filmed inside the instruments.

Performed by Eliot Burk, Nelle Anderson, Nic Brennan, Brody Scott, Peter Hagar & Clare Marie Nemanich on 12/4/2022 in the Boss Baby Stairwell at the California Institute of the Arts.

The ground will sprout thorns and weeds,
you’ll get your food the hard way,
Planting and tilling and harvesting,
sweating in the fields from dawn to dusk,
Until you return to that ground yourself,
dead and buried;
you started out as dirt,
you’ll end up dirt.
Genesis 3:17
