The oeuvre of late artist David Wojnarowicz spanned photography, painting, film, music, writing, and performance, all of which are incorporated into the hybrid work “ITSOFOMO: In The Shadow of Forward Motion” (1989). Produced in collaboration with composer Ben Neill, the multimedia work originally took the form of a performance that included a four-channel video piece accompanied by a live reading by Wojnarowicz with Neill’s original score.
