"Besides bending reality to create TUNDRA FALLS, Lawrence has more
significantly demolished the barriers separating theater, literature,
painting, photography and conceptualism. This collage technique is not
unlike filmmaker Todd Solondz's multiple character/multiple viewpoint
treatment in Palindromes. Lawrence lives another life(and asks others
to as well), uses the internet and classified ads as they are ordinarily
used. This creative demolition may be the most promising revisionist
movement in the arts today" - Big Mag Magazine, September 18,

TUNDRA FALLS was, for 9 months a private performance of a simulated
person. In an era of avatars, s/he became an objectified alternative
personality. Tundra's first live action was to place an ad in the local
craigslist advertising for a muse. People who answered the ad became
participants in her adventure . As she became part of their reality,
they became part of her fiction.
