Electrical Performances

Modulated electrical current, durational performance, Single-channel HD video projection, (27 minutes), 2017

This work, the third in the Electrical Performances series, chooses six new songs that deal lyrically with the relationship between the body and music. This particular performance was filmed vertically and features the entire figure in the frame. The artist is connected to the wall in this performance at two points and all electrical wiring and devices are hidden in pockets on the back of a shirt. This particular performance was designed and structured to create an ever increasing level of electricity and intensity as the performance went on. The expectation being that there would be a point of no return, at which point the piece would end.
