Mani Rao: Oil-free Easy Sweet Potato & Channa sprouts

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Mani Rao sent me this recipe. If you decide to try it, email me your photos at so I can post them!

Oil-free Easy Sweet Potato & Channa sprouts

  • Two small sweet potatoes, peel, chop into large chunks, with very little water, chuck it in the rice cooker and put on.
  • When done (in a few minutes), add a handful of kabuli channa sprouts and put the rice cooker off.
  • Sprinkle some Ajwain. Leaving it in the dry cooker helps lightly roast the sweet potatoes, and softens the channa sprouts (in case you’re not too used to eating raw).

The trick to this one is firmness, be careless / quick with the ‘cooking.’ Full-on cooking turns it into baby food and you don’t want that. What this has: carb, protein. Tasty w/o salt or oil. Sweet potatoes have both sugar and salt in them. Add a dash of olive oil if you please.

Mani Rao is a poet, and lives in India, Hong Kong or the USA. She is vegetarian. has more links to some writing.

PRESS RELEASE: Eseohe Arhebamen a.k.a. Edoheart develops Butoh-vocal Theatre

Monday, August 31st, 2009


In August, Eseohe Arhebamen led a Butoh dance workshop at The Living Theatre, a performance space located in downtown Manhattan.  Known as the “Dance of Darkness,” Butoh is a contemporary avant-garde dance form which was originally performed in Japan in 1959. Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation and influences from the Japanese artist tradition and performance art.

Born in West Africa, Nigeria, Eseohe is an international multi-media performer residing in Brooklyn, NY. She is also known on stage and in performance, as Edoheart. Eseohe has taught different art forms to adults and children for many years in Detroit and New York; as Edoheart, she intimately incorporates language into her Butoh dance workshops.

An award winning poet, writer, and student of both Butoh and African theater, it is Eseohe’s “passion for language” (her own Nigeria boasts 512 of them) that has led her to explore “the semiotic nature of audio/visual communication” and “the channeling of language through movement.” Typically known for its extreme imagery and white-body makeup, the addition of vocalizations to the art form is quite an innovation coming from the Nigerian artist.

Douglas Allen: Sidewalk (site unspecific)

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

Sort attitude and let us disappear for the time being asks what type of crisp or light- weight is presented in this catch-all strainer so many possibilities in the realm of expansion there is an inability to not record the transformational center institutes unlabeled sex traits as leading the point of focus is to concentrate (would you like soft or frenetic today) on the lack of transitions as mind a streaming seamless temple and body with much adornment and sound or solely time and space for the blank stems toss time for the setting fire in the snow

Postulate:  Douglas Allen is working on heat levels that make ice melt effortlessly.

edoheart’s Hearts- a wwwartexperiment on Facebook

Friday, August 7th, 2009

It so happens that I am obsessed with symbols and semiotics, the signs and signals with which we navigate our various environments, including that of the world wide web and her arachnid offspring, social networks. Similarly am I enamored of all things lingual, language and its turns, puns, limericks, bends and behaviors across different straits. To the end of fashioning myself another tongue with which to explore the rigmarole of metaphors and other signifying sayings, I have created a Facebook application experiment that I hope others will join me in using.
