Much more than 20 yrs right after Penobscot Country artists Jason Brown and Donna Decontie Brown first started producing and selling jewellery as Decontie & Brown, the pair have hung up their pliers for now in favor of a more expansive, interdisciplinary way of making art.

Shortly following the pandemic began, Jason Brown threw his enthusiasm guiding Firefly, a multimedia general performance artwork job that for the past two a long time has transformed his artistic lifetime. By music, video, dance and trend, Brown generates an immersive dwell encounter, drawing on ancestral Wabanaki audio and imagery, but with a futuristic twist.

“It’s Indigenous futurism,” he mentioned. “Many men and women assume of Indigenous people today as anything historical, or from the earlier. They do not see us as present, and they certain as heck never see us as futuristic. But we are below, and we will be below. A person of the explanations why I do this is to exhibit that.”
