The Great Seal, activated by artist/performer Reverend Billy Talen

The Great Seal  had its US premiere on November 8 at Eyebeam with an activation of the work, followed by a conversation led by experts in the areas of political activism, performance, religion, media, and neuroscience. Their voices and expertise provided a valuable perspective on the ideological, psychological, historical and political mechanisms interwoven in this project. Panelists include research scientist Suzanne Dikker, media theorist Kareem Estefan, religious studies scholar Suzanne Schneider, and artist and performer Reverend Billy Talen.
