A Tunnel Year is a three-part book with a play at its center, built from a few years’ worth of interrupted thoughts crammed into one-line scenes voiced by animals. Germinated in the Bardo of parenthood and compelled to work in the form of the fragment, it asks: Did I escape? Or am I lost? One of its forms is an artist book bridging poem, play, and essay. For The Chocolate Factory, the book will be installed into the room, performed as live radio play, and remaindered as ephemera. With gallery hours, the entire piece can be experienced privately or attended as group experience. Everyone leaves with something in hand.

Written, drawn and installed by Karinne Keithley Syers. Radio play performed by Caleb BarkKate BensonJohn GasperJulia Sirna-Frest, and Karinne Keithley Syers.
