Spatula&Barcode consider their entire involvement with the 2013 ASTR conference to be a work of relational performance. Most visible is our work coordinating the series of performances for "PerformASTR." The seed packets in your conference packet invite you to extend the project and "grow your own field." We would also consider our consultations with conference planners and our interactions with conference-goers at the ASTRturf(r) to be part of this work. Whether you attend any of the performances or socialize with us near the registration area, or just take our seed packets home with you, thanks for "Standing in a Field" with us.
