HOME, Inc.



Sarah Smiley

Sarah's performance art includes collaboration with creative people to combind performance art wiwth installations in a gallery or theatre setting. Part of her residence includes exporing early 20th century systems thinking and how a change in some of these early assumptions might look today. Sarah will be making special presentations in HOME's Black Box theatre and exhibition area during her residency.

Bebe Beard


From the window designing world, to teaching illustration at local colleges, Bebe Beard is a Fort Point Channel-based artist, now developing her craft at the Bates Art Center. With video installation work in the foreground of her life, she will be teaming up with local dancers, and experimenting with digital video, to produce her work-in-progress, ‘Plastic Series Works.’

Describing her work as "Orchestrating a convergence of plastic sheeting with ceiling paint, dance, pencil drawing and projected video", Bebe opened her residency featuring live and recorded performances with her first collaborator, Sun Ho Kim. The reception, on February 6th, 2004 made full use of the Bates' interiors that were transformed into a dancers' workspace.

During the exhibition, Bebe was on site to discuss her exhibit of old televisions with jarring images and sound loops compressed onto DVD at HOME, Inc.’s facilities. Sun Ho, brought a troupe of dancers from the Boston Conservatory that enhanced his choreographed movements in stairwells, on a high ledge, and against plastic sheeting in our theater. He then welcomed audience members to try out the foreign texture and experience the installation hands-on.

Bebe's plastic series is a commentary on many different meanings from acceptance, to political messages in the post-9/11 period.
