I am interested in minimal / cyclic-objectual / open source / site responsive performance, tensioning fixed points and gaps for experimentation.
Establishing a vocabulary of domestic technologies as I install / (re)use / uninstall them with non-hermeneutic actions that I’ll give shape as they appear in performance.
With sharp focus, I let them take over time and space, tuning into a meditative and silent wave with slow actions and delicate gestures.
Step by step, with no storytelling one action leads to another in response to a relationship with the world based on presence (and absence) and not on meaning.
