Some Islands (Joshua Nash and Jason Sweeney)

Some Islands is an experimental and investigational academic and artistic thinking group, read: band, dedicated to querying what linguistics is and might be and letting such ideas graze in the open airs and potential of art and science. The main protagonists are Joshua Nash, linguist and writer, and Jason Sweeney, musician and filmmaker. Some Islands deals with literal islands, like those found, for example, in the South Pacific, as much as metaphorical islands, like how we may view landed property, chairs, and ways of thinking as being island-like. This presentation deals with figurative islanding.
