On Friday/Saturday, March 5-6, at 8:oo pm, the exhibition expands into a
digital performance and music concert created by AlienNation Co
which links the "dance" of the cosmonaut with the theatrical scenario of
"Litany for a Dead Earth," composed by Vespucci before his death. This
concert will unveil some of the new digital experiments explored by
AlienNation Co. during the performance-technology lab.

Since the premiere of "migbot2" in December 1998, Birringer and
Staartjes collaborated in directing the first Houston "digital
performance and technology" laboratory at Winter Street. VESPUCCI is a
complex and dramatic video installation exploring outer space and the
hallucinations of the Russian cosmonaut Generico Vespucci.

Featured performers and visual artists in the Vespucci concert include
Angeles Romero, Don Calledare, Christy Singleton, Emmanuel Woodward, DJ
Flux, Chris Aranda and Steve Pare. Digital imaging/films by Johannes
