Onion Grass Ballet
by Margot Guralnick
Bronx, NY USA
Botanical artist Margot Guralnick is the creator of Dog Walk Diary, a daily art practice in which she makes and photographs ephemeral creations from finds gathered on outings with her rescue dog, Enrique. Her work is an attempt to decipher nature’s hieroglyphics and create order and pattern out of her discoveries. It's also an atheist's daily devotional—something so necessary in these scary times.
This is a list of rooms in our house

I am a musician, writer, and artist living and working in Chicago. I am part of the performance art collective Mocrep and the experimental cassette tape label Parlour Tapes+. This poem is extremely simple but it is a good representation of what I am up to in the quarantine era, a time of interiors, of keeping tabs, of accounting for what I have to offer others. Everything is coming out in list form.
DIAGRAM OF A CHOREOGRAPHY / TRUCKS

Our lower flank edges
Your cupped hands
swipe, frame the trailer hitch.
Today we smell fish
They rinsed out our interior
food remnants left on the ground
we yawn halfway open
for your footsteps to ping in,
Your footsteps are allowed to be seen here
cruising backwards to narrate, press our flanks,
the courtyard for a shiny
little hope of bouncing off,
or at least a lighting scenario,
if not our possible slide back,
the crush of our weight.
Josie Bettman is an artist engaging text, video, and live performance in order to question modes of producing visibility. Their recent work proposes a dysphoric aesthetic of friction and effort by layering time in folds and loops. Technologies, broadly defined to include spaces, material substances, cameras, and screens, all play roles in their collaborative practice.
