The visual album Blended Therapy presents a hypnotic audiovisual journey through the inner life of “glamazon hip-hop icon” Shasta Geaux Pop.
The world has been turned upside down along with many of our plans, schemes, and dreams. “Glamazon hip-hop icon” Shasta Geaux Pop (“close friend” of artist Ayesha Jordan) had a dream deferred, and now she needs therapy. In the visual album Blended Therapy, Shasta reflects and journeys with her partner J.U.S.E. (Justin Hicks) looking for connections through a sonic and visual exploration of the unseen parts of Shasta’s psyche. Check your body at the door and let your mind unwind while Shasta and J.U.S.E. create an atmosphere of electric sounds and charged energies.
Jordan joined the Shed family of artists as a member of the first cohort of Open Call participants. When her commission was delayed due to the pandemic, she re-envisioned her performance for a virtual audience.
Presented by Up Close invites artists and creative thinkers within The Shed family and beyond to contribute new artworks, discussions, and more, exploring what it means to think about the world and make art right now.
