Performing Space

I conduct a series of solo performances for the camera, which privileges the ears instead of eyes. I record my body pushing, pulling and dragging through a pathway of flour inside a 130 foot concrete grain elevator on Buffalo’s waterfront. My movement interrupts the silence, generating a sound different from what marked this site a century ago.

I project my single channel video performances onto fifty pounds of flour. The audience is invited to touch and manipulate the projection surface. Suspended headphones offer a private acoustic experience.
