Please help me welcome Danielle Adair to Big Other. Danielle is an artist and writer living in Los Angeles. She is the author of From JBAD: Lessons Learned (Les Figues Press, 2009), and her chapbook Models for a Building Block is forthcoming from P S Books. Most recently, she has produced solo performance and exhibitions for her current project First Assignment, a project for which she has “embedded” as a journalist with US Forces stationed in Afghanistan.
You just might find her sharing video/performance-related links and maybe some bio-psych articles of interest as well — all things relating to how language delineates itself in the everyday.
