Photographing since the 80's Shim Sham* has toured nationally & internationally as a photographer most recently with the Translucent Borders Project, a working group of the NYU Global Institute for Advanced Study.
The Global Institute of Dance and Music: Borders Project is a three-year exploration of intercultural dialogue, practice and exchange focusing on the role of dance and music at borders (geographic, cultural, socio-political, economic). The team, comprised of leading choreographers,
composers, and NYU faculty in theater, anthropology and recorded music, will examine ways in which practitioners of dance and music can act as
catalysts for mutual change between disparate cultural entities. Supported by the NYU Global Institute for Advanced Study (GIAS), Vanishing Borders is one of two long-term Working Group projects anchored at Tisch School of the Arts.
