"...All the stage components -- dance floor, light trees, risers, and backdrop -- were brought in from the outside and the cubicles along one wall housed work by 10 local visual artists, providing each with a mini-gallery. This centerpiece of this multi-disciplinary compound was (re)flex, a performance piece by choreographer Andrea Ariel with live musical accompaniment by the Golden Arm Trio and haunting film work by Luke Savisky, who filled the entire wide backdrop with simple images such as rippling water, clouds, and scratches in continuous film loops that complemented the dancing without competing with it...."

"..."The one part of the book that I worked over and over again was the conclusion, because I was always trying to update it according to when the book might come out.
